Very cool drone footage of Blue whales feeding off the top of the South Island/South Taranaki Bight. Blue whales were almost hunted to extinction so why risk conducting experimental seabed mining or seismic blasting in their habitat?!

Operation Icefish started out as an expedition to tackle illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing in the Antarctic, concluding after five months with some spectacular results. It was the first mission of its kind. But what started as an anti-poaching campaign also became a unique opportunity to gather data on the impact ingested plastic has on marine wildlife in the Southern Ocean.
