What is the PCFG?

The Pacific Coast Feeding Group (PCFG) of gray whales is a group of about 230 Eastern North Pacific (ENP) gray whales. PCFG gray whales generally winter in the gray whale lagoons of Baja California and spend the summer and fall feeding along the Pacific coast of the United States and Canada. PCFG whales have been observed during the feeding season from southern California through Barrow, Alaska, with a primary feeding area extending from northern California through northern British Columbia (41° – 52° N, excluding the Puget Sound region).
