Humpbacks are fairly unique looking.  They have very long  thin flippers
relative to other baleen species and very obvious ventral throat
grooves.  Also, the humps on their back by their dorsal fin is quite
noticable (and obviously why they got their common name!).

Hope your project goes well.  Cathy Schaeff
