Didn't these people see that Star Trek Movie, you know the one where they had to save the whales.


Blue Whale Hunted & Killed

So unnecessary.
I thought it was illegal to hunt an endangered species.

I watched a documentary about sushi not to long ago, "it's on Netflix I believe" and it showed how sushi is decimating the blue fin tuna population.

They interviewed a sushi chef and asked him about the situation and he said it's like telling Americans not to eat beef....wtf?
He compared a farm raised plentiful animal to a rapidly disappearing fish....

It only goes to show what can be justified in the name of cultural heritage.



Found it.

Yeah, the common cow isn't going extinct anytime soon, I see cattle farms all the time, they are being replaced as fast as they are killed. Such a poor comparison.

The star trek whale is a humpback not a blue whale

Just saying

I hope, if it is in fact a Blue Whale (which it certainly appears to be, and experts agree it most likely is) that this whaling company is held accountable.

Very sad to see this...

You do realize that Star Trek isn't real, yes?

To the O.P. This is a very sad story indeed.

I watched a documentary not too long ago, and I don't know if what it said is true, but supposedly the Japanese did not even hunt for whale and dolphin for consumption until WWII, they had to develop a taste for it.

When people were starving during WWII they started hunting for whale and now claim it has been a Japanese tradition for centuries. The documentary makers found no evidence of this being some time worn tradition. In fact, in northern Japan, where they filmed, the meat stores keep whale meet as pretty much bottom shelf meat, cheap and not preferred.

Also remember reading Japan, Iceland (in this story), and Scandinavian countries are not part of any international agreements not to hunt them. They never agreed to those agreements and think it part of their culture to hunt whales. Japan does observe law on some species and only hunts a certain number, few hundred whales, over 4 to 6 months of hunting season in the north.

That definitely looks like a blue whale.

Which nationality are they?

Edit: Nevermind, they are Icelandic. Shame on them, so sad.
