New whaling season starts
Today the first whale hunting boat went out this season. Their mission is to hunt minke whales but the minke whale has been one of the most important species when building up Icelandic whale watching which has been the fastest growing sector within tourism in Iceland since 1995.
North Sailing is strongly against whale hunting and in our opinion whale hunting will harm Iceland´s image and not serve our country´s interest in any way.
The following picture was taken yesterday where we met a breaching minke whale just outside Husavik and that one surely was alive…
The whales are worth more to Iceland alive than they are dead.
