Dead Humpback Whale Found Floating Offshore Near Montauk

The dead whale, first discovered Friday morning, is not being removed from the water just yet. The Atlantic Marine Conservation Society (AMSEAS) said that due to current conditions in the ocean and the location of the whale, its team has decided the best course of action is to place a location tag on the carcass and track its movements.

AMSEAS will be tracking the data collected from the tag to determine the next steps. Boaters should be on the lookout for a floating humpback whale carcass in the ocean waters off Montauk.
