NOAA, Aug 20, 2015 (emphasis added): 2015 large whale stranding locations in the Western Gulf of Alaska… These mortalities are unusual because there is a marked increase in the magnitude or a marked change in the nature of morbidity, mortality or strandings when compared with prior records… Additionally, large whale strandings have increased during the months of July and August in the waters off of British Columbia, Canada… Large whale strandings have continued to the present… Additionally, a common murre die-off was reported… This is the first large whale UME in Alaska.

AP: 30 large whales [have died in the] Gulf of Alaska… [NOAA] declared the deaths an “unusual mortality event”… [In Canada] six large whales have been reported dead…

Guardian: Experts puzzled as 30 whales stranded; Scientists ‘very concerned’… NOAA concedes ‘bottom line is we don’t know what’s causing deaths’… [There’s] an official investigation into the mystery of what could be killing so many marine mammals.
