Norway Calls For More Whalers To Halt Declining Industry

Just 19 ships took part in Norway’s annual whale hunt last year, a remarkable drop from 33 only ten years earlier.
 
Despite the welcome and terminal decline of this cruel industry, Norway’s Directorate of Fisheries says the sector needs to recruit new members!
 
In 2011 the Norwegian government gave whalers a historically high quota (number it could kill) of 1286 whales in a bid to boost the industry but only 41% were actually killed. Whalers point to reasons for failure ranging from high fuel costs to bad weather but a more likely factor is fading demand for whale meat even within Norway’s own population.
