A dead whale was spotted in the northwest of Bahrain’s territorial waters, five nautical miles northeast of Diyar Al Muharraq.
A warning was circulated by the Interior Ministry stating that the carcass is floating near “Fasht Marwah”, a marine area northwest of Bahrain.
A Bahraini fisherman, Hassan Salman, is apparently said to be the first to see the dead whale and post a video on his personal social media accounts.
Officials stated that carcass of the creature will be removed after investigations are done by the Supreme Council for Environment.
The 15-metre long-dead whale isn’t the first dead sea creature to be found in the waters of Bahrain, carcasses of many sea creatures including whales, dolphins, turtles and more have washed ashore on the Kingdom’s beaches in the past few months.
