In early December, a small group of right whales have been spotted off Jeffrey's Ledge in the Gulf of Maine and spurred a notice for large vessels in those waters to slow down to 10 knots. This area in the Gulf of Maine is suspected to be a breeding area for right whales. The calving area is not a breeding area for right whales, unlike humpback and grey whales.
