The Freshwater Whale Watching Society (FWWS) is committed to gathering and posting sightings of whales in Lake Superior. The anecdotal information is critical to research on freshwater whale migration and is used to assist the United States and Canadian Coast Guard with their commercial shipping and pleasure boating information efforts. We are dependent on your sightings, so send them in!
