A commercial fisherman off Central California risks his life to free an entangled whale.
The video was filmed off of the coast of Central California in summer 2018. A commercial fisherman jumps into the water to free a humpback whale entangled in a rope. Whales sometimes become entangled in lines from sources including fishing, aquaculture, and other maritime activities. Fishermen are part of the solution to whale entanglement, working with state and federal agencies to reduce gear interaction with whales as well as literally risking their lives to free whales when no other solution will do.
