The British Whaling Trade

Liverpool University Press

This section of the journal provides a detailed history of the modern whaling industry, between 1904 and 1963. New techniques, new equipment, and new ships led to the complete overhaul of the traditional industry. The rapid expansion of the trade is linked to the shift in oil technology, and the repurposing of oil for soap and margarine. The section explores, in depth, new whaling techniques; new whaling areas; advances in oil technology; expanding fleets and new fishing grounds; crisis and contraction of the industry; and the sharp decline in the final years of the industry in the wake of the Second World War.
