Scientists aboard the NOAA research vessel Oscar Dyson in the North
Pacific have sighted a creature of great rarity and even myth: a white
whale.

The white killer whale was spotted with its pod about two miles off
Kanaga Volcano, part of Alaska's Aleutian Islands, on February 23. At
the time, Kodiak-based Oscar Dyson was on a research expedition for
NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center, assessing pollock fish stocks
near Steller sea lion haulout sites.
