THE main object of the research conducted by the "Discovery" Committee is the investigation of the biology of the economically valuable whales frequenting Antarctic waters. A number of "Discovery" reports dealing with various aspects of the subject have already been published, and Dr. Mackintosh's present paper incorporates much of this material in a comprehensive survey of pre-war conditions. At the present time, whaling is at a standstill, and the stock of whales is enjoying a respite from… 
THE NATURAL HISTORY OF WHALEBONE WHALES
TLDR
The whalebone whales are migratory animals, inhabiting high latitudes in summer where food is plentiful, and moving into warmer waters in winter where there is little or no food, but where breeding takes place, and the stocks of blue and humpback whales have been depleted by the modern industry.

KNOW ABOUT THE STOCK STRUCTURE OF THE ANTARCTIC MINKE WHALE ? A SUMMARY OF STUDIES AND HYPOTHESES
A review of the studies on stock structure in the Antarctic minke whale was conducted with the purpose to establish a plausible hypothesis on stock structure of this species in the JARPA research
Encountering whales: How encounter rates became the basis for managing whaling
Declining rates of encountering whales, including both sighting and catching, were noted by whalers throughout the 19th century, and these declines became the first indication that whaling was
Review of the assessment of two stocks of Antarctic minke whales (eastern Indian Ocean and western South Pacific)
An in-depth assessment of an eastern Indian stock (I-stock) and a western South Pacific stock (P-stock) of Antarctic minke whales distributed between 35°E and 145°W was carried out by the Scientific
Baleen Whales: Conservation Issues and The Status Of The Most Endangered Populations
TLDR
Current data suggest that, of the various threats potentially affecting baleen whales, only entanglement in fishing gear and ship strikes may be significant at the population level, and then only in those populations which are already at critically low abundance.

Blue whales of the Chiloé-Corcovado region, Chile: Potential for anthropogenic noise impacts
Blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus spp.) were once abundant in the Southern Hemisphere, but commercial whaling hunted them to near extinction in the previous century. The species is currently listed
Status of the world's baleen whales
TLDR
