Peer Reviewed

Abstract: I planned to talk not only about fish but about some of the other resources of the ocean. We might entitle this "Industrial Oceanography," in a way, because although, as Mr. Kielhorn has said, part of America's industry has recently found out there is an ocean, industrial oceanography is really a very old enterprise. In fact, Leif Ericsson, Columbus, and prince henry the Navigator were al industrial oceanographers, and the Portuguese codfish fleet had been operating for quite a few decades in the Grand Banks and the banks of New England at the time the colonizers came over on the Mayflower. they had been engagedin industrial oceanography.
