Collapse of whale meat market stops hunt in Norway

Posted by admin — 7 July 1999 at 8:00am - Comments


Greenpeace have documented that Norway's two largest whale-meat warehouses are full, with some boxes dating back to 1986, the year when the international moratorium on commercial whaling was taking effect. Norges Rafisklag - the Norwegian wholesaler controlling the entire raw fish market in the country - asked whalers to stop providing whale meat because it has not been selling well this year.

Norwegian whalers have stopped whaling in most areas, although some are still hunting in the North Sea whaling grounds.
