Blue whale habitat is quite widespread.

Blue whales were badly hunted during the old whaling days.

Because they became so rare, it is not exactly known whether their populations have started to recover.

But despite their low numbers, their habitat is thought to be quite widespread.

There are, however, a few different subspecies in different oceans of the world.

There is a western Atlantic population around north-eastern US, Canada and Greenland.

There is an eastern atlantic population between Azures in south and Iceland in north. And there are two smaller subspecies of blue whale found in Indian Ocean.

The so-called Antarctic Blue Whale has been spotted in southern Indian Ocean, while pygmy blue whale has been seen in northern parts and is believed to be quite common
