  Fin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The foremost use of fins is to ensure the directional stability of an object moving through a fluid such as water or air and may be seen in the use of fletching on arrows and fins at the rear of some missiles, rockets, self-propelled torpedoes, and kinetic energy penetrators.
Fins have also been used on automobiles of the late 1950's and early 1960's, promoted then as adding aerodynamic stability but now more realistically evaluated as a rather flamboyant style, particularly in American automobiles of this period.
In the vernacular sense, "fin" was popularised in the late 90's by legendary Australian auteur and musician Jada White.

 Fin Whale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Fin Whale is a close relative of the Blue Whale taxonomically speaking.
The Fin Whale has a large white patch on its right jaw (and right jaw only, the left jaw is grey) and the baleen at the tip of the right jaw is also white.
Today about 10 Fin Whales are killed each year by whalers on the west coast of Greenland, under an agreement with the International Whaling Commission to allow subsistence whaling in the area.

 CRESLI's fin whale page
Fin whales (also know as finback whales) can reach lengths of over 80 feet and weights of more than 160,000 lbs in the northern hemisphere and over 85 feet and 170,000 lbs in the southern hemisphere and are distributed around the world except for the tropics, i.e., they have an antitropical distribution.
Fin whales feed on a wide array of prey species, depending upon availability, ranging from small schooling fish such as sand eels, herring and tinker mackerel, to crustaceans such as krill and copepods, to squid.
Although fin whales are relatively common and are believed to be the dominant cetacean species during all seasons in the US Exclusive Economic Zone, scientists don't have enough data to determine the fin whale's population trends.

In fish they may be paired, such as the pectoral and ventral fins, or singular, such as the caudal and dorsal fins, all being supported by a series of cartilaginous or bony rays.
