    Re: History of whaling: tonight on tv (USA)
    From: Peter Fogg

    "From 1952 until 1962 a whaling station operated at Tangalooma, Queensland, on Moreton Island, [Australia] which harvested and processed 6277 Humpback Whales during that period. It was forced to close after it had drastically reduced the number of whales in the eastern Australian Humpback population."

    Of course whaling still goes on in the Southern Ocean, by the Japanese.

    It was a very interesting show. I was surprised to find out that the last sailing whaler was set to sail in 1924!
