Use of the term white whale often refers to the encounter of Ahab and a massive whale in MOBY DICK. Ahab was so obsessed with catching the whale, that it eventually led to his death at the hands of the whale. In reality, the white whale is another common name for the beluga whale, a species of whale found in Arctic and sub-Arctic waters.
