Are whales hunted off the US East Coast?

    No, at least not legally. Only indigenous tribes in Alaska and one in Washington are allowed to whale in the United States.

    No, at least not by American companies. Commercial whaling has been outlawed in the US since the 1986 moratorium of the same title, issued by the International Whaling Commission. The only whaling allowed in the US is that done for scientific purposes and by indigenous groups. Of the latter, the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission monitors the hunting of whales closely, and they, as the name suggests, are based on the West Coast.

    Note that anything beyond about 200 miles from the east coast of the US would be beyond the US Exclusive Economic Zone, or international waters, in which US law would not apply.
