By the early 20th century, black whales, Eubalaena spp, had come to be uniformly called “right whales” due to centuries of confusion between the English, American and French languages, the laziness of whalers, the assumptions of historians, and a severe shortage of animals in the North Atlantic useful for.

Right whales were found in largenumbers in the Cape Cod areauntil about (Allen ). These sightings suggest a distribution further offshore than previously reported.
