This whale is around Iceland. This is a humpback. It's food is mostly whitebait (small fishes). It is long and heavy, 12-19 meters and 25-48 tons. The humpback is a good singer. The song carries for 30 kilometers in the ocean. This whale is a male or a bull. The female is called a cow and the offspring a calve.

fiskur = fish
hvalur = whale
haf = ocean, sea
sjr = sea, seawater

komi i sl = (literally translates something like come blessed or happy) hello everyone, hello all
