S. S. William Scoresby achieved an enviable record of scientific work between 1925 and 1937. I n 1949 The Discovery Investigations were taken over by the National Institute of Oceanography. Discovery 11 made one more extensive Antarctic cruise in 1950-51 to give a tally of a quarter of a century of active investigation into Antarctic marine biology. However, the collections are by no means fully described and new Discovery Reports appear year by year. The Discovery Investigations were initiated in order to understand the biology of the commercial whales in the Southern Ocean.

Biological results were not extensive. The period 1940-45 saw the development of almost comic opera moves and countermoves as British and Argentinean parties sought to establish their own claims to the islands of the Scotia Arc and to the Antarctic Peninsula. Science often suffers from political comic opera but in this case science gained through the establishment of occupied bases and the maintenance of scientific programmes. The British endeavour was mounted under the code name of " Operation Tabarin ".

The evidence points to a migration route from South America to the Antarctic Peninsula which is obviously still available, and a possible more ancient route through the Macquarie Rise. Squires also pointed out that the indications of uneven distribution patterns for southern corals from " blind " dredging and trawling have been confirmed by underwater photography. When corals do occur, they may be present in great numbers, but such concentrations may be separated from one another by areas of very low coral density.
