Chris Arthur, from the states Parks and Wildlife Service, said the 12m long sperm whale died on Wednesday night following attempts to move it from a sandbar in Macquarie Harbour back into open water. We did everything possible to save this whale, Mr Arthur said. The whales death added to this weeks tragic toll, in which 24 sperm whales and two minke whales died off the island state and 65 pilot whales died after becoming stranded on remote tidal flats at the northern tip of New Zealands South Island. In that case New Zealand conservation workers were forced to shoot 18 members of the pod after it became clear there was no chance the marine mammals would survive. Mass whale strandings are not uncommon at Farewell Spit, the New Zealand Herald reported, with the mammals able to swim into the relatively shallow water during high tide, but becoming stuck on the sand when the tide recedes very quickly. The whales were discovered on Monday night by a tour operator. At that time 21 were already dead. The remote location meant rescuers were unable to help and authorities hoped the survivors might refloat on the afternoon tide, but they moved closer to shore. ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l FISHINGntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l FISHING
