His Story

Sirius was born in 1982 to Fringe.  He was named after the star Sirius due to the bright white mark on the center part of his tail.  Sirius also shows a cut in his tail stock from being entangled in fishing gear.

Sirius has black flippers

Sirius is one of the few humpback whales on Stellwagen Bank with black flippers.  The almost all black pigment is on the dorsal or top side of his 15 foot long flippers.  This is an easy way to identify Sirius when he is close to the boat or flippering at a distance.

You can meet Sirius, his mother Fringe and several brothers and sisters on
