Resumen

QUIROZ, DANIEL. The whaling fleet of Sociedad Ballenera de Magallanes: Histories and operaciones in the southern seas (1905-1916). Magallania [online]. 2011, vol.39, n.1, pp.33-58. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442011000100002.

Sociedad Ballenera de Magallanes, a leading Chilean whaling company, formed as a limited company in 1906 and dissolved ten years later. During this period the company will use in whaling nine ships, five catchers, two factory ships, and two pontoon ships, i.e. deposits of coal and oil. Sociedad Ballenera de Magallanes used two systems for the processing of carcasses of whales, the frst represented by the bahía Águila land station and the second by factory ship Gobernador Bories. Whaling was carried out by the “catchers”, the “admirals” of the whaling feet. In this paper we want to show the origins of the feet, the most significant technical features of ships, the operations developed for the Sociedad Ballenera de Magallanes between 1905 and 1916, and the individual histories of each ship after the sale.

Palabras clave : whaling; whaling feet; Sociedad Ballenera de Magallanes; Punta Arenas.
