Thanks Tracey .... no Pacific animals are fine too, but you are right we need the underside (ventral side) of the fluke for identification purposes. Look forward to any other photos you may find!

Did you spot this in Juneau?

Wasn't sure if I should include this one because the flukes aren't vertical, but I will look through my other pics. I am pretty sure I have some that are better. Are you wanting only Atlantic animals?
