By Eric M. Johnson SEATTLE (Reuters) – U.S. marine biologists have launched an investigation into the mass die-off of 30 whales found washed ashore along Alaska’s southern coast this summer, nearly three times the region’s average for this time of year, a federal official said on Friday. Since May 2015, the carcasses of 11 fin whales, 14 humpback whales, one gray whale, and four other whales of indeterminate species turned up along the western Gulf of Alaska, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
