Orcas in Lisbon

052 and OOLX01

On the past Monday, 6th of August we found a group of orcas few miles off Lisbon feeding of fish along with common dolphins. These individuals belong to a known group from the Gibraltar population, the Bartolo pod. Only individuals from 51’s matriline were present (50, 51,52 and an unknown baby).

These orcas usually feed during the summer months in Gibraltar, chasing tuna. There are a total of 5 groups on Gibraltar’s population and all seem to pass by Lisbon coast.
