Cuvier’s beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris) is the most widely distributed species of beaked whale, with a cosmopolitan distribution throughout almost all temperate, subtropical and tropical waters of the world as well as sub-polar and even polar waters in some areas (Heyning, 1989; MacLeod and D’Amico, 2006). Globally, it may also be the most abundant species of beaked whale within the family Ziphiidae (Heyning, 1989). However, there is little information on local distribution in many areas around the world.
