THE ADVENTURE WITH
THE BIG SPERMWHALE
(Phiseter macrocephalus)

 

This rescue appened in summer of 1981 in Mediterraneo Sea in souht of Tirreno Sea near Eolie archipelag between Lipari,Salina and Panarea Islands . My team of G.R.O. SUB underwater photographers found a big spermwhale in trap of nets , he were just breathing but he was diig! ! We cut the net whith ours knifes and save the smermwhale after some hours of strong work .
This were the first (and pereaps the only)rescue of a big spermwale in all the world of wich exists also a photographic documentation !

Sound of a blessed spermwhale
