クジラ・イルカの疑問50 (みんなが知りたいシリーズ9)


P.S. 石油の登場によって、石炭産業などが衰退したことは聞いていましたが、イギリスやアメリカなどの捕鯨産業もなくなったことは、本書を読んで初めて知りました。 



< Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「捕鯨」=「whale fishing」>


今回出てきた「捕鯨」の英訳は、「whale fishing」になります。


「イギリス、アメリカは捕鯨から撤退した」を英語にする場合、「Britain and the United States withdrew from whale fishing」とすればよいですね :-)。

PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 139 "The Power of Oil"】


I sometimes see news about the International Whaling Commission (IWC).


Japan and Norway are often cited as examples of whaling countries.


The material to be introduced today "Whale & Dolphin Question 50 (Japanese only)" explains many questions regarding whales and dolphins and this book also depicts details the history of whaling as follows.


“While Japan and Norway have been eating whale meat, countries such as the United Kingdom and the United States mainly used oil (whale oil) before.


And as the oil industry developed in the 1900s, the role that whale oil had played so far replaced by crude oil.


The United Kingdom and the United States withdrew from the whaling industry, because whale oil was no longer profitable.


On the other hand, Japan and Norway, which used meat for food, were able to continue whale fishing, because there was demand for meat even after the demand for whale oil ceased." (Unquote)
