Iceland’s lone whaling crusader, Kristjan Loftsson, is attempting to ship an estimated 1,700 tonnes of fin whale meat out of the country.

Despite limited market for the meat and opposition at home and abroad to the bloody trade in the endangered whale species, the shipment, believed to be the entire stock from last summer’s fin whaling season, has been loaded onto a cargo vessel believed to be bound for Japan.

Scientists urged to make clear statement on Japan’s Antarctic whaling plans

As the scientific committee of the conservation body for whales, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) begins its meeting in San Diego this week (May 19-June 3), it is being urged to follow the lead of an expert review panel and strongly reject Japan’s plans to resume Antarctic whaling.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), wants the scientists to make a clear recommendation whether Japan’s plans for a continuation of so-called ‘scientific whaling’ in the Southern Ocean should go ahead.

In den letzten Tagen wurde das Transportschiff „Winter Bay“ mit 1700 Tonnen Finnwalfleisch im isländischen Hafen Hafnafjordur nahe Reykjavik beladen. Ziel der brisanten Fracht soll Japan sein.

Kristjan Loftsson, Besitzer der Walfangfirma Hvalur, ließ im Jahr 2014 137 der bedrohten Finnwale töten. Experten nehmen an, dass diese den 1700 Tonnen entsprechen, die nun verschifft werden. Dieses Fleisch will er nun offensichtlich nach Japan exportieren, obwohl es dort kaum einen Markt dafür gibt.
