Cetacean mitochrondrial DNA control region sequences of all extant baleen whales and 2 sperm whale species. The model is applied to Minke whale management. Important inter-regional substitution effects are shown to exist. In addition, comparison with previous studies shows that multiple stock management is necessary for efficient management. Finally, the current Minke whale moratorium is shown to be inefficient unless significant nonmarket values by:

    Killer Whale Attacks on Minke Whales: Prey Capture and Antipredator Tactics. Marine Mammal Science Horwood, J. (). Biology and Exploitation of the Minke Whale, 1st ed. Florida: CRC Press. IUCN. (). Balaenoptera acutorostrata (Common Minke Whale, Dwarf Minke Whale, Lesser Rorqual, Little Piked Whale, Minke Whale). The minke whale is the smallest member of the family Balaenopteridae or rorqual whales, a family of whales that have baleen and many throat grooves which distend when feeding. This group also includes the blue (Balaenopteridae musculus), fin (Balaenoptera physalus), sei (Balaenoptera borealis), and Bryde's (Balaenoptera edeni) whales.

    The Antarctic minke whale or southern minke whale (Balaenoptera bonaerensis) is a species of minke whale within the suborder of baleen is the second smallest rorqual after the common minke whale and the third smallest baleen whale. Although first scientifically described in the midth century, it was not recognized as a distinct species until the : Mammalia.

Then, it documents the historical and current exploitation by man. Although they are less commonly observed south of 65°S than Antarctic minke whales (Branch and Butterworth, ), dwarf minke whales are sympatric with Antarctic minke whales in much of their range (Acevedo et al., ), which renders some of the visual based information on the distribution of both species ambiguous or inaccurate, due to missing or incorrect identification to species level at sea Cited by: 2.

Status. The taxonomy, or classification, of minke whales is complex because there are at least two recognized species: the northern or common minke whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) and the Antarctic minke whale (Balaenoptera bonaerensis).The dwarf minke is currently considered a northern minke subspecies, but it could potentially be a third species (which has not received an official.

The Minke Whale Project is supported by many organisations and lots of wonderful people. We are particularly grateful to our institutions, James Cook University and the Museum of Tropical Queensland, as well as long-term support from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, and wildlife conservation NGOs including the Whale and Dolphin.

The minke whale is the smallest of the rorqual whales, seldom exceeding 10 m in length. In Korean waters, the minke whales are usually between and m and weigh metric tonnes. The rostrum is very narrow and pointed, with a single ridge from the blowholes to the rostrum.

Anatomy The stomach of minke whales consists of four compartments, including an initial nonglandular forestomach followed by a glandular fundic chamber, a connecting Har I ., Minke whale Fig. Gastrointestinal tracts of a harp seal ( kg) and a minke whale ( kg).Cited by: 4. Joe Horwood does an excellent job of compiling a large amount of information on minke whales and presenting it in a very readable fashion.

The result is an excellent reference book for biologists interested in what is known (up until ) about what is currently the most heavily hunted whale.5/5. Products from the protected East Sea/Sea of Japan (‘J’ stock) minke whales (Balaenoptera acuturostrata) are sold widely on the commercial markets of Japan and Korea despite the protection of this stock since To determine the minimum number of individual whales for sale, genotypes from six microsatellite loci were used to profile North Pacific (NP) minke whale products purchased on Cited by:   The order Cetacea comprises some amazing species, representing some of the most evolved creatures that inhabit this earth.

Yet, they also represent a group of species for which much remains unknown. There are over 80 species of cetaceans composed of porpoises, dolphins and whales.

Upon reaching sexual maturity (6–8 years of age), males measure an average of m (23 ft) and females 8 m (26 ft) in length, : Mammalia. Interest in marine mammals has increased dramatically in the last few decades, as evidenced by the number of books, scientific papers, and conferences devoted to these animals.

Nowadays, a conference on marine mammals can attract between one and two thousand scientists from around the world. This upsurge of interest has resulted in a body of knowledge which, in many cases, 5/5(1).

The first field studies of dwarf minke whales in the Great Barrier Reef began ininvolving the late Dr Peter Arnold from the Museum. Blue whale - Balaenoptera musculus The largest animals ever to have lived on the planet (surpassing even dinosaurs), blue whales inspire awe and wonder with all the records they break: The largest blue whale ever recorded was 33 m long; a blue whale’s heart is the size of a small car; a child could crawl through a blue whale’s arteries; and blue whales produce the loudest sound on earth.

The prey types of minke whales are primarily krill and small schooling fishes. Exploitation For the last 2 decades, the minke whale has been the main target of the Antarctic whaling fleets. Although the IWC commercial whaling moratorium has afforded all great whales protection, a certain amount of “scientific whaling” continues and Norway.
