(UPI) - The leviathans of the sea are being threatened with extinction by whaling fleets, notably Russian and Japanese, which send factory ships with fishing fleets to process whale products. So far, international efforts to curb the practice of using ocean-going factory ships, so-called pelagic fleets, have been futile, according to Douglass Fonda, founder of the Whaling and Marine Manuscript Archives in Nantucket, a New England Island which once sent out dozens of whaling ships. The 14-nation International Whaling Commission IWC is the chief organization concerned with protecting the world's whale herds, and for more than a decade the IWC has tried to have observers placed aboard whaling vessels. (...) "The idea is to have an occupation and an income for people in a large, varied area of the world without decimating the whale population," he said. "Although the land stations would kill a few whales, there would still be thousands upon thousands of creatures who would propagate and these herds would build." Kingsport News - December 16, 1971, Kingsport, Tennessee]; [Whales fate rests with Russia and Japan - The whaling museum was started in early 1970. Fonda, a former rare book and antique dealer who has nurtured an interest in the sea and the "man - versus - largest - mammal" challenge since his childhood days in West Orange, N.J., utilizes 'the basement of a "Starbuck house" - one of the houses Joseph Starbuck built for his three sons - for the archives. The documents are kept in a temperature and humidity-controlled vault. Some of it on microfilm and others are original manuscripts. Contributions have ranged from the University of Hawaii to the British Museum and the Scottish archives. There also is a small amount of whaling memorabilia. The last whaler to leave Nantucket, Fonda said, was The Oak which headed off Nov. 16, 1869 and was sold in Panama in 1872.
