Sperm whaling is the hunting of these marine mammals for the oil, meat and bone that can be extracted from their bodies. Sperm whales , a large and deep-diving species, produce a waxy substance that was especially useful during the Industrial Revolution , and so they were targeted in 19th-century whaling , as exemplified in Moby Dick. Sperm oil is no longer needed, but another unusual product, ambergris , is still valued as a perfume fixative. Although the animal is classified as a vulnerable species , aboriginal whaling in limited numbers is still permitted, notably from two villages in Indonesia, for subsistence. Sperm whales were hunted in the 19th century by American, British and other national whaling fleets.

A young male sperm whale that was found dead off the coast of Spain had 64 pounds of garbage in its digestive system. The foot whale's carcass surfaced in February near a lighthouse in Cabo de Palos on Spain's southeastern coast. A necropsy revealed that the animal had trash bags, polypropylene sacks, ropes, net segments and a drum, among other things, in its stomach and intestines. Local authorities said the animal died because of inflammation of the abdominal lining, or peritonitis.
