About the Species
Narwhals are found in the Arctic Ocean. Male narwhals have a tooth that grows into a long clockwise-spiraled tusk, resembling a unicorn horn.
Narwhals, like all marine mammals, are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.
NOAA Fisheries and its partners are working to conserve narwhals and further our understanding of this species through research and conservation activities.
