Gray Whale (Eschrichtius robustus)

Gray whales were once highly valued for food and oil products, and overharvested to the point of near extinction. They are still harvested in small numbers in eastern Asia and subsistence harvest in Russia and Alaska native groups still occurs in small numbers. Today, they are a popular attraction on commercial whale-watching boats.
