Grim tally mounts in Norway as minke whalers have their best season for years

The Norwegian Råfisklag (Fishermen’s Sales Association) reports that, as of Monday June 30th, 603 minke whales have been killed. Although the season is barely halfway through, the grim tally already exceeds last year’s total of 590 whales and once again, Norway has allocated itself a quota of 1,286 whales.

Råfisklag’s Deputy Director, Svein Ove Haugland, commented: “Last year we got the biggest catch since 2005. We see that there has been a positive development in the Norwegian whaling industry in recent years and this trend is continuing this year.”

The increased tally coincides with an intense marketing campaign funded by the Norwegian government to promote whale meat consumption to new sectors, including young people.
