Learn about the history of Whaling with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.

The history of whaling is a fascinating look at international efforts to protect finite resources in international waters, otherwise known as common territory or commons.

While whaling can date back to 6000BC, large-scale whaling is thought to have commenced around the twelfth century, with the Basques who killed a large number of right whales in the Bay of Biscay. Despite very primitive modes of slaughter, using hand-held harpoons and man-powered boats, they were believed to have depleted the local whale stocks within a century.
