New Bedford's nickname is "The Whaling City", as its history is closely tied with the whaling industry. New Bedford's whalers sold whale products such as oils, candles and whalers such as Lewis Temple, refined whaling techniques by creating new tools such as the toggling harpoon, making whaling easier and leading to New Bedford's importance in this historic industry. Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick, worked in New Bedford as a whaler and drew inspiration for it in his novel.
