ISMN Database

The Icelandic National PhotoID database contains a collection of individually identifiable photos of different species of marine mammals seen and photographed in Icelandic waters.

The ISMN Catalog (IS Megaptera Novaeangliae Catalog) gathers over 1500 unique humpback whale individuals from the 1980s to date (and the numbers still growing) collected during MFRI surveys and by various partners/contributors.

All images presented here are copyrighted, and are the propriety of the photographer.

Our main partners are

  • The University of Iceland's Research Center in Húsavík
  • Faxa-Cetacean research organization
  • Special Tours

MFRI extends special thanks to these and all our other contributors who kindly send/upload their photos and share with us their sightings information.
