Iceland to import Norwegian whale meat after whalers miss target?

Reports from Iceland suggest the country may be forced to import whale meat from Norway after a disastrous whaling season that has resulted in just 17 minke whales being killed.

Iceland allocates itself a quota of over 200 whales but has struggled to hunt anywhere near this number of whales in recent years. Around 50 whales are needed to meet demand in Iceland, though much of this comes from tourists, often unaware they are sustaining this cruel practice.

With poor weather expected to return to the North Atlantic before long, it is unlikely Iceland’s whalers will be able to make up the shortfall, leaving with the embarrassment of having to ask its nordic neighbour to help out.

Find out more about whaling and how you can help stop this cruel practice.
