The North Pacific right whale (Eubalaena japonica) is a very large, robust baleen whale species that is now extremely rare and endangered. The Northeast Pacific subpopulation, which summers in the southeastern Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska, may have no more than 40 animals. A western subpopulation that summers in the Sea of Okhotsk between the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin Island appears to number in the low hundreds of animals. Order: Artiodactyla, Infraorder: Cetacea, Family: Balaenidae, Genus: Eubalaena, Species: Eubalaena japonica (Lacépède, 1818).
