Right whales in the North Atlantic can be found in Cape Cod Bay in the spring,
the Bay of Fundy in the northern Gulf of Maine in summer and fall.  Mating
probably takes place in December-March in the North Atlantic, birth takes
place 12 months later off the SE coast of the United States. Right whales eat
copepods primarily.  Although copepods are so small that 1500-2000 can fit
into a teaspoon, rights consume more than a ton a day.

and seals in the North Atlantic, in your local library.
