Today's winner is: KARINNE TONG, 12, Westerville, Ohio The killing of whales as an industry goes back quite a Long time The Basques were doing it in the Bay of Biscay as early as the llth century. •Whaling was being carried on in North America in the 17th century. The chief reason for killing whales was to obtain whale oil. This was the oil from the large baleen whale, and the blue, fin, humpback, and sei whales. The oil obtained from sperm whales is called sperm oil. Until the middle of the 19th century, whale and sperm oil was used for nearly every purpose where oil is required. It was used for lighting, for lubrication, steel tempering, leather finishing, and many other processes. Whale oil has been used a great deal in the soapmaking industry and in the manufacture of margarine. Sperm oil is now used for a varity of purposes in the chemical industry. The oil yield is highest from whales taken in Antarctic and Arctic waters in the spring and summer, when the whales are feeding heavily. A blue whale provides about 120 barrels of oil, and a sperm whale about 50 barrels. As a result of this hunting of whales, certain ones — the blue whales, white whales, and gray whales—are almost extinct. An International Whaling Commission was established in 1946 to control the number of whales taken. But it wasn't very effective. The blue and humpback whales became more rare, and the fin whale became scarce too. More efforts are being made now to protect whales from becoming extinct. FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1.
