Old Thom the Sea Wolf

A fisherman spotted an orca whale off Chatham MA yesterday, and he has been identified as Old Thom. This whale has been seen several times by the New England Aquarium Right Whale Research team during summer surveys in the Bay of Fundy (2012, 2014, & 2015). Old Thom has been cataloged by  Atlantic Whales in Newfoundland. It’s amazing to think about all this whale has seen in his life as he cruises around the North Atlantic!
