In the Name of Science: A Review of Scientific Whaling

Scientific whaling has been used to keep the
whaling industry in business through a period
when commercial whaling is banned.

The IWC has condemned scientific whaling by
Iceland, Norway and Japan through more than 40
resolutions since the moratorium. In short, as
one such resolution states, the data obtained are
“not required for management.”
