place : time : Plot :(情节)
The whaler hunting at the beginning of 20th century
______ baleen whale
捕鲸(whale hunting)，将系有绳索的铦或 叉、镖等，采用射击或投掷方式刺入鲸体进 行猎捕。猎捕对象有须鲸和齿鲸两类，以蓝 鲸、长须鲸、露脊鲸、抹香鲸、座头鲸、北 极鲸、灰鲸、鳁鲸、小鳁鲸等为主。由于鲸 油是贵重的工业原料，历史上欧洲和美洲一 些国家的捕鲸活动长盛不衰。自20世纪中叶 起，由于过度猎捕导致资源衰退以及国际上 对捕鲸的限制，捕鲸业已趋衰落。
传统捕鲸方法:6名捕鲸者离开大船，乘小艇追 逐鲸鱼，小艇通常长8.5公尺，装备有具倒钩 的捕鲸铦和长索。鲸一旦被铦刺中，便带着绳 索逃遁，直到筋疲力尽浮出水面，人们在那儿 用捕鲸枪(一种更长的捕鲸铦)将它杀死，用绳 索拖到大船边，用有刃的长枪割取油脂，并把 尸体抛弃。 现代捕鲸业肇: 挪威人福伊恩发明了一种 捕鲸炮，用来发射内充炸药的标枪。后来又使 用了动力船，与捕鲸炮相得益彰，这些方法使 用至今几乎没有什么变化。
