Please explain to me how harvesting and using an animal is bad if it is done within sustainable levels and done legally.
The current catch levels through active whaling are sustainable, however the bycatch kill levels likley are not. Additionally, the cetaceans killed from fishing nets do not get used, but are wasted. If you are truly concerned about the continued survival and ethical treatment of whales and are educated about the facts, you should be concerned about commercial fishing practices.
If someone consumes commercially obtained marine fish, yet condemns the legal acquisition and/or consumption of whale meat (& whale byproducts), they are being hypocritical.
