Abstract
    The accidental entanglement of two juvenile southern minke whales in artisanal gillnets in 1991 is discussed. They represent the first positive records of this species for Peru. Some biological data are provided and the incidental fishery mortality of these and other large whales off the west coast of South America is reviewed. It is likely that severe underreporting occurs due to vastly inadequate monitoring effort.
