3) This new information has also shed light on the previously unexplained population decline and failure to recover of the North Pacific right whale, Eubalaena
japonica (Ivashchenko and Clapham, 2012).
The distributional biology of the right whale Eubalaena
glacialis in the western North Atlantic.
In contrast, North Atlantic right whales, Eubalaena glacialis, are frequently entangled with fishing gear, most often with pot gear and to a lesser extent with gill nets (Johnson et al.
Historic and current habitat use by North Pacific right whales Eubalaena japonica in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska.
A countervailing (positive) bias might have come from the inclusion of oil from humpback whales, blackfish (mainly pilot whales, Globicephala macrorhyncha), and occasionally right whales, Eubalaena
japonica, fin ("finback") whales, Balaenoptera physalus, and blue (sulphur bottom) whales, Balaenoptera musculus, in the whale oil returns of vessels visiting the gray whale grounds along the Mexico and California coasts.
1) Recent usage has established Eubalaena as the genus name for the right whales (Schevill, 1986).

borealis; and North Atlantic right whales, Eubalaena

Right whales, Eubalaena
glacialis, and grey whales, Eschrichtius robustus, were sometimes misidentified as bowhead whales, and whaling records maintained during the short period of time this stock was hunted were incomplete (Bockstoce and Botkin, 1983).
The chapter on the right whale presents a basic description of the species Eubalaena
glacialis and its natural history, discusses its past and present status, and presents recommendations for future protection and research.
