Whale tracking

Follow humpback whales on their migration live here.

In September 2018, ten humpback whales were tagged near Svenskeøya in the Barents Sea, a well-known feeding area for the species.

Now they have started their migration, and anyone can follow their journey here.

The whales are being tracked as part of the Whaletrack project, a joint initiative between the Institute of Marine Research and UiT The Arctic University of Norway.

The researchers expect the tags to continue working and transmitting signals for at least two months.
