Reykjavik old harbour

Jón Baldur my son took this picture the other night of the sunset at Reykjavik old harbour and if you look carefully you will notice 2 ships out of four marked with big H, these are the old whaling ships powered by steam engines and hopefully they will be up and running catching whales next year.

Why not leave the two steam ships in the harbour and let the whales live?

I thought the world had moved on, from steam ships and whaling!

They are very well maintained painted regularly (every 3-4 year) so they can go whaling within short notice and whale meat taste even better than beef and rheindeer so hopefully we can have whale meat sooner than later.

Strange comparison Codprawn surely I can tell you Cod I don´t eat as loaded with worms and we mainly export Cod to UK and USA and Prawn as well is not human food to my opinion.

I thought we moved on from the 70's greenpeacer era.

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.
