The common minke whale is the smallest of the rorquals, and one of the smallest baleen whales (second smallest only to the Pygmy right whale).In the North Atlantic, Norwegian whaling vessels in allegedly caught individuals of up to m (35 ft) in length, but they were likely only measured visually in comparison to objects of known dimensions aboard the ships themselves – the longest Class: Mammalia.

To explore further the past, current, and changing roles of large whales in the North Atlantic ecosystem, this chapter briefly reviews the history of whaling in this region and the status of the exploited species.

It presents case studies to contrast the exploitation history and subsequent recovery status of three species (Atlantic gray whale, North Atlantic right whale, and humpback whale.

For the highly depleted North Atlantic right whale, (Eubalaena glacialis), I obtained a detailed estimate of pre-whaling distribution and abundance by inferring from the historical distribution.
