The Location of Whales in the Antarctic

(p.132) 9 The Location of Whales in the Antarctic
The Whaling Expedition of the Ulysses 1937–38

Experience taught that heavy ice outside the Ross Sea indicated very few whales to be present in that body of water. Norwegian expeditions therefore did not force the pack but entered the Ross Sea only if mild conditions prevailed. The Japanese frequently worked that area. The blue whale was reported to be the only commercial species in the Ross Sea. It was believed that most of the expeditions working the Antarctic for 1937–38 were between 30° E and 130° E; the Japanese were believed to be either in or just outside the Ross Sea. Species of whales were located there within the restricted limits. However, it is possible to locate the areas within which whales could be found by looking at past records that indicated results over an extended period.
