Map of the world distribution of sperm and baleen whale catches

Distribution of whale catches (1970)

DESCRIPTION: Scarce map of the number of catches of sperm whales and of baleen whales worldwide. From the "Atlas of the living resources of the seas" a publication of the Department of Fisheries for the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations [1].

Updating Maury one hundred years earlier, the color of whale pictographs are used to represent whale species. Location, and catch quantity also are represented on this chart of the world. Maury's chart reported whale sightings for sperm, baleen, and right whales, while this chart displays data on actual catches only of sperm and baleen whales.
