This year, the number of whales seen on the northern coast of Sao Paulo increased due to the abundance of fish. The evaluation was done by biologists and oceanographers from research institutions studying the region. The main species found are humpback and bryde whales.

"This year, there was a reduction of industrial vessel licenses for mullet fishing in southern Brazil. Thus, the supply of fish species increased significantly, attracting whales in search of food," says oceanographer Hugo Gallo. According to him, cetaceans often swim along the Sao Paulo coast between the Antarctic and the archipelago of Abrolhos, where they reproduce.
