The fin whales one of the marine mammal species known to exist in the Eastern Mediterranean. Our knowledge still less about their population rates and movement in Eastern Mediterranean. We need long term research to understand the marine mammals of the East. The major threats they faced of human origin and these are; marine pollution, climate change, noise pollution and collision with ships.
