A 56-foot-long endangered sperm whale that washed ashore in Hawaii on Saturday most likely died after ingesting trash, including at least six hagfish traps, seven types of fishing net, two types of plastic bags, a light protector, fishing line and a float from a net, scientists said on Thursday.
The dead whale was first observed Friday floating on the reef off Lydgate Beach on Kauai’s east shore, SFGATE originally reported. High tide carried it onto the beach on Saturday, according to the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources.
