About this book

Account of the commercial activities of the pioneer company which exploited the vast natural resources of the great Southern and Antarctic Oceans. The narrative of Pesca embraces both political intrigue and commercial enterprise in the harshest of maritime environments, and the company's impact on the great Antarctic whaling industry and the bearing it had on British and Argentine political activity right up to the Falklands war.
