Whale hunters go on holiday – Aftenposten.no

Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reported that buyers of the hunters’ whale products have gone on vacation themselves, so there’s not much market for the catch.The inventory of whales already shot so far this year also seems to have saturated the market.

“We don’t have buyers for more whales than those already shot, therefore we’re sending out a message to halt the hunt,” Hermod Larsen of the association told NRK.

Well, that sounds sensible. I think a major problem for whaling enthusiasts is coming up with a market for the product. I don’t think there is much of one any more. Therefore: no more hunting.
