Found in the subpolar and subtropical waters of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, the Sei Whale gets its name from the Norwegians, who named it for the pollock (“seje”) fish that the whalers often found the sei whale near. Pronounced “say” or “sigh,” the sei whale is a great whale, or rorqual, and can grow to 100,000 pounds (45,000 kg) and up to 60 feet (18,). They possess on average between 200-400 baleen plates that use to filter feed on 2,000 pounds (900 kg) of fish, krill and small crustaceans each day.
