Description The sample set consisted of 287 North Pacific sperm whale samples for which six hypervariable microsatellite loci and 36 SNP loci have been genotyped. Samples obtained between 1972 and 2007. Samples were collected from solitary or groups of free-ranging sperm whales by directed biopsy or the collection of sloughed skin during cetacean research surveys and also from dead animals stranded on beaches, floating dead at sea and from incidental fishery takes. Sample locations refer to the waters of the eastern and central North Pacific. See manuscript for additional details on samples.
