Caption

Whaling ships. An illustration from a whaling publication dated 1720, showing the Dutch whaling fleet within the Arctic Circle. Whales have long been hunted for their meat, for oil obtained from their blubber and used in food and cosmetics, and for ambergris (a wax-like substance from the intestines) used in the leather industry.
