Fisheries in the Southern Ocean

Year: 2008 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Fisheries, together with tourism, represents a major economic activity around Antarctica. In the old days whales were hunted for oil - these days fish and krill are captured for fish meal and human consumption. The areas in the Southern Atlantic are vastly more productive, and this is where most of the fish is caught. The top fishing vessels hail from Japan, Ukraine and Poland. Worth mentioning is that these figures are still small compared to the main fishing zones of the World.
