White whale

Service layer

The map shows the distribution of White whale. Latin: Delphinapterus leucas. White whales are found in most arctic and sub arctic waters, including the Arctic Ocean and its adjacent seas. However, their distribution is somewhat disjointed in that they are virtually nonexistent in the Greenland Sea. A small, southern population of white whales resides in the St Lawrence River in Canada. In Svalbard, white whales exhibit a tightly coastal distribution, never leaving the near-shore waters of the Archipelago.
