Tohorā used to be so common in NZ waters that people in Wellington use to complain of being kept awake at night but all the noise.
During the whaling era in the early 19th century, the NZ population was hunted down from 30,000 to only 40 individuals.
They get the name “Right Whale” because they were known as the ‘right’ whale to hunt – they were easy, swam close to shore, and provided large amounts of meat oil and bone.
