Blue Whale Migration

Blue whale migration is a bit of a mystery.

Although it is believed that blue whales, like humpback, gray, and other large baleen whales migrate between summer feeding grounds in colder waters and winter breeding grounds in warmer waters, the migration of blue whales remains very little studied.

It is tempting to believe that the eastern Atlantic population for example, which is found between Iceland in north and Azures in south, migrates between those two as do many other baleen whale species.

While many publications state that they do migrate and they very likely do too, take this with a little bit of caution because it is not totally confirmed. Before it is confirmed there is always a possibility that the sounthern and northern individuals may be different populations.
