Video of whale being freed here...

A white whale with a harness marked "St. Petersburg" has been interacting with Norwegian fishermen this week. The whale would rub its sides against the boats in an attempt to free itself - or perhaps even in a call for help from the fishermen. After several attempts, the whale was finally freed to the enjoyment of all the fishermen there.

What on earth could the Russians be using these whales for? Surveillance?

Dolphins have been trained to plant explosives in the water before. I would think a whale could be trained to do the same. Maybe it is a whale that Putin rides with no shirt on

Dolphins and seals have long been used for looking for divers in harbors, locating mines, placing explosives, inspecting hulls with a camera, and other things.

tbh surprised they didn't harpoon it - Norway is one of the few remaining countries that still hunt whales.

It's obvious it's Aquaman's pet!

I saw orca at the marine base near my home in the late 60s. Don't know what they were doing but orca don't belong in Hawaii.



There was a project which tried to use dolphins' natural shark killing techniques against humans. Didn't work. They were too nice.

”When they were supposed to ram us with the guns,” he said, ”they either swam away or put their snouts on our shoulders, very affectionately. They were the worst at taking orders.”

Pearl had a number of dolphins they used for various tasks. They'd take them either out into the main channel, or the open ocean to train.

My cousin and I saw the Kaneohe MCAS critter outside the bay when we were surfing, swimming free with an escort boat. The dorsal fin was unmistakable, we looked at each other, knowing what we were looking at. The pen was just to the north of the west end of the runway.

We used to hang out behind the Hickam O Club and would see them out in the boats all the time.

We spent a lot of time there watching arrivals and departures from Pearl. Back then you could call an automated number and they'd tell you what ships were heading in and out and when.

"Back then" we would anchor our Boston Whaler outside North Beach (MCAS) and paddle in to surf.

Stupid 911, screwed up everything.

What on earth could the Russians be using these whales for? Surveillance? Funny that, I read a few months ago it was the US that was training whales and dolphins to locate Russian submarines. Is this mischief making at it best or should have I said 'at its worst?.

Why couldn't the Russians be re-establishing their Beluga and dolphin military program? Think about their recent expansion with the development of the Arctic bases? TV Zvezda, owned by the Russian defence ministry recently had a report on the testing of Belugas, etc for military purposes in the Arctic.

There was a recent disclosed tender for Dolphins for the Russian military.
