Average prices of baleen whale oil (1900–77) source: J. N. Tønnessen and A. O. Johnsen, The History of Modern Whaling (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1982), p. 753. Adapted with permission of University of California Press. notes: The figures are the middle-prices of the highest and lowest annual sale. Price per long ton = 1,016 kg = 6 barrels. From 1920 (et seq.): the price is that of the Antarctic production of the previous season. APPENDIX 191 192 APPENDIX TABLE 3.
