Optionally add a free-text focus topic, which will limit the summary to information in the source material about the requested topic.

# Response
Blue whales are closely related to sei whales, with gene flow between minke whales and blue whales.
Blue whales are known to interbreed with fin whales. A 21-meter (70 ft) pregnant female whale caught off Iceland in 1986 was found to have a blue whale mother and a fin whale father, and its fetus was sired by a blue whale.
In 2024, a genome analysis of North Atlantic blue whales found that 3.5% of their genome was derived from hybridization with fin whales.
Chilean blue whales may overlap with Antarctica blue whales and Eastern North Pacific blue whales in the Eastern Tropical Pacific.
