Palavras-chave: focas, comércio, exibições, coleções, séculos XVIII e XIX

Resumo

Este artigo examina as interações entre ciência, espaços e agentes comerciais, com foco na circulação e estudo de certos animais marinhos que durante séculos foram objeto de exploração comercial, exposições e debates científicos devido à sua classificação. A análise das práticas de naturalistas, marinheiros e organizadores de espetáculos entre os séculos XVIII e XIX visa colaborar com essa história e discutir como as representações sobre as criaturas que habitaram o espaço marinho foram modeladas.
