Norway is now the world’s leading whaling nation, killing more whales in the past two years than Japan and Iceland combined. A new report released today calls on the international community to respond to Norway’s systematic efforts to weaken management rules and improve market conditions for its whalers. “As one of the world’s most modern and prosperous countries, Norway’s whaling is an anachronism,” said Dr. Sandra Altherr, biologist with ProWildlife.  “Slaughtering whales to eat and trade has no place in Norway and serves only to diminish the country’s international reputation.”

One thought on “Norway is the World’s leading Whaling Nation

  1. Ahhh. Whales are delicious, and whaling is a proud Norwegian hunting tradition. I find Dr. Sandra Altherr comments to be racists against Norwegians. A blatant attack on a small ethnic minority in this grand world. I will keep eating whale meat until the day I die.
