Captain William Smith discovered the South Shetlands in 1819 and reported the presence of whales there.  In 1842 Sir James Clark Ross particularly noted the presence of whales in Erebus and Terror Gulf, on the south east tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, which led to the despatch of four vessels from the Dundee whaling fleet to the area in 1892; a Norwegian expedition under Captain Larsen also left for the Gulf at about the same time.  The whaling enterprise was a failure as the vessels were not properly equipped for whale hunting.

Steam whaling around the Falkland Islands and the South Shetlands was started by Alexander Lange in the 1905-06 whaling season with one floating factory and two whalers, with a catch off of the South Shetlands of 58 whales.  During the 1907-08 season four companies operated in the South Shetlands, with a total catch of 650-700 whales, and a first attempt of whaling was made in the South Orkneys but ice forced the expedition to go to the South Shetlands.  Actual whaling operations were first conducted in the South Orkneys in the 1911-12 season.  By the 1912-13 season, the whaling industry in the Dependencies had become the largest in the world and there were 32 whale catchers operating around the South Shetlands alone.

Initially licences were issued covering all of the Dependencies, excluding South Georgia which was licenced separately, but in 1912 it was decided to issue separate whaling licences for the South Shetlands and Graham Land, the South Orkneys, and the South Sandwich Islands.  By 1915-16 there were nine whaling companies operating a total of 29 whale catchers in the South Shetlands.
