The Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office led the 5-year review and requested review by the Northeast Fisheries Science Center, Office of Protected Resources, and Southeast Regional Office. The Recovery Plan for the North Atlantic Right Whale (Eubalaena glacialis), Marine Mammal Stock Assessment Reports, and a review of the scientific literature provided the information in this document. The literature review included publications related to the North Atlantic right whale made available through August 2017.

Documents received through this submission process were included in this review. This included four submissions containing peer-reviewed literature.
