What is wrong with whaling if it is done within internationally agreed upon standards which establish quotas to ensure that the populations of the hunted species are stable & not endangered?

If any of you eat animal meat, who are you to judge someone else's choice animal meat if it is legally obtained?

Bogib - I'd like my humpback medium rare with some bottlenose on the side.


Beluga; The other white meat.

I detest Greenpeace with a passion but I don't like to see something as majestic as a whale killed............

Also Whales are still at risk!!!

Many whale species are, but not all - don't shoot the species that are at risk. Besides, the approximately 1200 whales taken each year by the whaling nations (Iceland, Japan & Norway), pales in comparison to the estimated 300,000 whales, dolphins porpoises killed each year from bycatch from commercial fishing operations.

So you're justifying something bad by telling us how much worse something else is. Cool reasoning.

I have been several time on my way to Gimli my grand parents have been there number of times same goes to my parents in law so we do have some relatives over there. But even I do travel quite often to Minneapolis in Minnesota and according to maps distance to Winnipeg is not that great as I normally drive to Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky so I must take a northern route next time as well.

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.

What makes you think I'm not?

Whether it's lawful has nothing to do with it.

Perhaps you are concerned about commercial fishing practices, however I would guess that the majority of people who consider eating whale meat morally repulsive have no qualms about eating commmercially obtained marine fish.

Hi prairie tuber
I for one don't have a problem with that at all, provided the 'harvesting' is done compassionately. The main problem with whaling is that your well, whaling! they were here millions of years before us (hopefully will be here millions of years after us too!) they are earth's largest creature and you must admit if you were out in your rib and saw one you'd just have to say 'wow!'
we don't need to eat them, can't we just leave something alone for once?
About the commercial fishing methods, your dead right, thousands of dolphins around my coast are being killed and thrown away as waste.
regards
Kernow
