It is illegal to approach right whales within 500 yards in U.S. waters without a scientific research permit. Images on this web site that were obtained within U.S. waters were collected under research permits granted by the National Marine Fisheries Service.

The North Atlantic Right Whale Catalog is the result of a tremendous collaborative effort of over 300 individuals and organizations. Data and images are the property of the individual photographic contributors to the Catalog and are copyrighted by the New England Aquarium with all rights reserved to those contributors. The images in this web site are not to be used for commercial or personal use without written copyright permission.
