Iceland’s whaling magnate prepares to ship whale meat consignment to Japan

Iceland’s lone whaling crusader, Kristjan Loftsson, is attempting to ship hundreds of tonnes of fin whale meat out of the country, bound for Japan.

Despite limited market for the meat and opposition at home and abroad to the bloody trade in the endangered whale species, the shipment, which is at least two years old, has been loaded onto a cargo vessel.
