    E3: Whale Slaughter in Norway, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands

    E3: Whale Slaughter in Norway, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands

    In this episode of the Captain Paul Watson Foundation Podcast, I catch up with Paul about the whales that were killed in Norway, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands.  Norwegian whalers have kill 580 whales in 2022.  Iceland has killed 140 Fin Whales (Balaenoptera physalus) - an endangered species!  In one instance a whale killed in Iceland came into the harbor with 4 grenade harpoons stuck in its body.  These whales are dying a slow and painful death.  Paul also mentioned a recent grind in the Faroe Islands where 260 whales were killed.    Captain Watson tells us to avoid Faroese salmon in restaurants, as that is a way for us to put economic pressure on their country.  If you plan on traveling to Iceland or know someone who is, please tell them to not eat whale meat while they are there.  We need to put pressure on the Icelandic government to not renew their whale hunt quota for 2024.

    Iceland's current annual whale hunt quotas allow them to kill up to 209 Fin whales per year and up to 217 Minke whales per year.  We need this to end before it is too late.

Stellar

I served with Captain Watson aboard the Steve Irwin approximately one decade ago during a whale defense campaign in Antarctica. He is a treasure for the marine environments and while directions may have changed or shifted with foundations, his guidance and knowledge remains the core. Thank you for this access to him and thank you Captain Watson for all you’ve done and continue to do.
