Vessel Strikes And Entanglements of North Atlantic Right Whales
Today, there are only about 400 North Atlantic right whales left and it is estimated that only 85 are reproductively active females. The survival and reproductive success of these remaining females and their offspring is critical to right whale recovery.
Studies suggest that more than 85 percent of North Atlantic right whales have been entangled in fishing gear at least once.
About 60 percent have been entangled multiple times.
