False killer whale population of Florida is still unknown, but scientists estimate that in 2004 some 780/2 killer whales in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
NOAA Mammals Network

Six years ago, 28 whales beached off Key West. In January 1970, the report describes the sheets in south Florida are probably 150-175 people, but researchers have not been able to confirm this estimate.
