South Seas Fisheries established

Cape Horn - Gateway to the New Fisheries

1776

British merchants in the American colonies have spent several years planning these expeditions and most of the expeditions have used American crews and ships. Hopes of developing these new fisheries are risked by the increasing tensions in the American colonies as merchants and slave owners hope to avoid British taxes.
