Record #191051:

A history of the exploitation of the Ross Sea, Antarctica / David G. Ainley.

Title: A history of the exploitation of the Ross Sea, Antarctica / David G. Ainley.
Author(s): Ainley, David G.
Date: 2010.
In: Polar Record. (2010.), Vol. 46(238) (2010)
Abstract: Reviews literature on anthropogenic impacts on marine systems of Ross Sea to quantify extent of extraction of biological resources from continental shelf and slope since start of 20th century. Permanent decrease in Weddell seal population of McMurdo Sound was caused by Heroic Age and later New Zealand expeditions slaughtering seals to feed sled dogs. Blue whales were extirpated from waters of shelf break front during 1920s whaling and have not returned, though minke whale population has recovered since hunting during 1970-80s. Only industrial fishing has been for Antarctic toothfish Dissostichus mawsoni since 1996-97 season, and effects of this fishery on ecosystem have recently become apparent. Ross Sea is possibly only ocean area where details of biological exploitation can be assessed with such accuracy, and its continental shelf is least affected of any on globe, though slope has been more adversely affected.
