Dear Sarah:

I do not know what do you mean by "Norwhale."  This may be the northern
bottlenose whale, the northern right whale, or the northern right whale
dolphin. Each one of them has different dietary habits.  Regarding the other
two, this is what they eat:

Cuvier's beaked whale: squids and deep-sea fish

Baird's beaked whale: fish, squids, and crustaceans
