The National Geographic Magazine, Vol. 20 : July, 1909 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The National Geographic Magazine, Vol. 20: July, 1909 It is unnecessary to dwell on the eco nomic evils of pelagic or open-sea hunt ing, whereby the females are slaughtered, the young starve, and the herd perishes. The interests of the nation, of commerce, and of the individual suffer alike, while the resident natives are reduced to hope less beggary and ultimate starvation. Canada observes certain regulations as to season and limits, which somewhat alleviate the evils. The Japanese sealers, however, recognize no restrictions, and frequently go to extremes, invading American territory, slaughtering the fur seal and plundering the rookeries - in short, imitating in a small way the pirati cal forays of the corsairs of the Middle Ages.
