From Baird Maritime
The author was professionally involved with Australia’s and, later the global, whaling industry as a marine biologist, bureaucrat and administrator from 1951 to 1963. He thus saw a once important industry through its dying decades.
He experienced the rise of shore based whaling from Carnarvon, Albany, Byron Bay, Norfolk Island and Tangalooma and their inevitable decline and demise in the late 1970s. Apart from fast changing public attitudes to whaling, the industry itself had become too efficient and whale stocks were rapidly declining. The industry was doomed.
The author strongly advocates ecology over economy. He believes that whaling should never again be permitted. Few people currently disagree with him.
An interesting yarn, passionately told.
