Arabian Sea Humpback Whale (IMAGE) Wildlife Conservation Society Caption A whale breaches close to the Southern Omani town of Hasik -- an Arabian Sea hotspot favored by breeding whales. Arabian Sea humpback whales do not migrate (unusual for a highly migratory species) and have remained separate from other humpback whale populations for perhaps 70,000 years.
