Abstract: It is well known that whales in captivity suffer from dorsal fin bending.However, the mechanisms behind this change are poorlyunderstood. Humans can suffer from similar symptoms either after a period ofimmobilization or after suffering a brain lesion. Therefore, we here speculatewhether the bent dorsal fins are reflecting contracture development in whales.
