1 mi. N of Ballena Is., between Klawak Inlet and San Alberto Bay, on W coast of Prince of Wales I., NW of Craig, Alex. Arch. 1.8 miles long.


Named in 1897 by Commander J. F. Moser, U.S. Navy (USN). This island was given the Spanish name "La Ballena" meaning "the whale" by Don Juan de la Bodega y Quadra and Francisco Antonio Maurelle. H. E. Nichol, U.S. Navy (USN), published the name "Egg" for this island and "Fish Egg Islets" for Balandra and the Ballena Islands. (U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, 1891, p. 121). Baker (1906, p. 257) says "Moser, 1897, uses the name "Fish Egg" for a much larger island about a mile north of these (Balandra I., Ballena Is.) * * * Moser's name is here adopted for the island and the islets near it."
