The blue whale population using the waters around Sri Lanka is little studied and considered a subpopulation of pygmy blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus indica Blyth, 1859) that largely remain in the waters of the northern Indian Ocean with a portion remaining resident around Sri Lanka throughout the year. Blue whales are the most commonly observed baleen whales in Sri Lankan waters.
