Harbor porpoises

The Dutch name for harbour porpoise translates as “brown fish”, which is really rather a strange name! First of all it isn’t a fish and secondly it isn’t brown! In German the harbour porpoise is called Schweinswal, which translates as sea pig, which is also the original meaning of porpoise.
