Stejneger's beaked whales, Mesoplodon stejnegeri, inhabit the deep waters of the ocean far from the shorelines. These animals are rarely seen at sea. They prefer a habitat with cool water. Mesoplodon stejnegeri has been observed living sympatrically with Hubb's beaked whales where the ranges of the two species overlap off the coast of northern Japan to Oregon and British Columbia.
