Another humpback whale has died off the B-C coast after being entangled in lines from a fish farm in Nootka Sound. Paul Cottrell with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans says it appears the latest whale wasn't interested in the farm, but was feeding on herring in the area. He says the entanglement problem is growing. (Three whales have been caught in fish farm lines since September, although most of the whales were entangled in fishing gear or caught on shellfish trap lines.)
