Dyremat

Dyremat

Towards the end of whaling, it may seem as if the industry in many cases were kept artificially alive. This sperm whale cow was slaughtered to produce pet food. It is quite obvious that this was neither economically or ecologically sustainable.

Beinsaga Southern Queen

Beinsaga Southern Queen

Lemmert started to divide the head from a baleen whale Southern Queen. Vapor Bones Saga was an invention that made this job considerably easier, but no more harmless. The picture was taken in the season 1922-23, and this was also the first season such saws were installed on the floating factory ships.
