NATURE's HUMPBACK WHALES follows these migrating marine mammals and presents their unique singing and hunting habits.
Graceful and magnificent, humpback whales inspire awe in young and old alike. These marine mammals travel great distances to take advantage of the best breeding grounds and feeding spots. North Pacific humpbacks, for example, mate and give birth in Hawaii and then travel to Alaska each summer to feed.
These gentle giants are famous for their singing abilities belting out seductive ballads to attract mates or to challenge other would-be suitors. But they also have other talents. Their unique hunting skill, called bubblenet feeding, involves a group of humpbacks working together to capture schools of herring. Each whale has a particular role in the process: One whale swims in a circle while blowing bubbles under a school of herring. When the bubbles rise, the school of herring can not escape and form into a tight ball in the center. Other whales vocalize grunting or screaming to scare the herring to the surface. The whales then rise with their mouths wide open to capture large amounts of fish.
Trek across the oceans with these astounding creatures and discover more revealing details about their wonder-filled, watery ways.

Introduction to the Cetacea
Whales and Dolphins
The Cetacea are one of the most distinctive and highly specialized orders of mammals flukes arranged horizontally. Modern whales have greatly elongated anterior skull bones, and the nostrils are located on the top of the head, forming the blowhole . The forelimbs are specialized to form flippers, and the hind limbs and pelvis are extremely small and do not normally extend out of the body wall of the animal. Modern whales may be divided into two subgroups: the Odontoceti (toothed whales) and the Mysticeti echolocation , producing sound waves using a complex system of nasal sacs and passages, and using the echoes to navigate. Dolphins and porpoises are examples of odontocetes, as are belugas, narwhals, killer whales, sperm whales, and beaked whales. Baleen whales lack teeth completely as adults (although teeth are present in fetal baleen whales). They feed by straining small marine organisms out of the water using plates of baleen , a hornlike substance that forms filaments that hang down from the roof of the mouth. Blue, right, humpback, minke, gray, and fin whales are well-known examples of baleen whales. Some baleen whales, most famously the humpack whales, are known for the strange and complex songs they produce; their function is not clear, but unlike toothed whales, baleen whales do not use their songs for echolocation. The fossil record of whales is rich, and recent discoveries have shed much light on the origin of the Cetacea.

Whales: The Kids' Times
Whales Whales are the largest animals that ever lived on the Earth. They are even larger than the dinosaurs of prehistoric times. All whales belong to a group known as cetaceans (seh TAY shuhnz). There are two types of whales - toothed (odontocete) and baleen (mysticete). Several species of both toothed and baleen whales have been hunted close to extinction and still face threats to their survival by human activities. Learn more about whales from NOAA's National Marine Mammal Laboratory (NMML).

      Marine Mammals What Are the Issues? Whaling
      Corbis For the last several years, the IWC has passed resolutions urging Japan to cease its "scientific" whaling, because it does not in fact comply with the spirit (or even the strict letter) of the ICRW's scientific whaling provision. The IWC found the research to be unnecessary, and that the same ends could be accomplished by non-lethal methods. Both Norway and Japan, as well as other countries that receive fisheries aid from Japan, lobby vigorously at the IWC every year to lift the moratorium, saying several whale stocks have recovered to the point where they can once again be commercially hunted. Yet even as they make this claim, the Scientific Committee of the IWC has determined that even minke whales, considered relatively unaffected by previous decades of rampant whaling, may be far less numerous than originally estimated, especially in the Antarctic. Whales are difficult to count, because they live mostly underwater and they migrate great distances. For this reason alone, they are singularly inappropriate targets of a commercial hunt. Should they be depleted (should quotas be overly optimistic or hunting poorly regulated), by the time managers even notice, it will likely be too late for recovery. This may in fact be the case for blue whales (the largest mammal ever to have lived), right whales, and some stocks of humpback whales, which have yet to show any clear signs of recovery despite decades of protection.

Research projects
focus on ecology and behavior, population dynamics, life history, and status and trends. Information is provided to various domestic and international organizations to assist in developing rational and appropriate management regimes for marine resources under NOAA's jurisdiction. These organizations include the NMFS Alaska and Northwest Regional Offices, the NMFS Office of Protected Resources, the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council, the International Whaling Commission, and the Arctic Council. Research conducted by NMML utilizes a variety of methods and tools to obtain needed information. Determination of status and trends of marine mammal populations requires information on abundance, stock structure, mortality and net productivity. To obtain these data, censuses are carried out from ships, aircraft and on land. Radio and satellite-linked telemetry is utilized to determine movements and migrations, critical feeding areas and depths, and other behavioral data. Sophisticated analyses and modeling are carried out to determine necessary population parameters. Research programs are carried out cooperatively with many other federal, state and private sector collaborators.

General Information
Whales are considered by many to be the most magnificent and intelligent of the Antarctic marine mammals. Members of the order Cetacea which includes dolphins and porpoises, whales are divided into two groups: toothed (Odontoceti) and baleen (Mysticeti). Toothed whales have narrow jaws lined with peg-like teeth which they use to catch fish, squid, and other marine mammals, swallowing them whole. They are smaller than baleen whales and only have one blowhole. The Killer (Orca) whale and the Sperm whale are the only toothed whales found in the Antarctic region. Baleen whales have comblike structures instead of teeth that are used to filter krill and fish from the water. They are larger than toothed whales and have two blowholes. The
