Young humpback whale is freed of tangled rope

When the whale was spotted, it was about 25 miles south of Oahu. Experts began a five-hour effort to free the whale using a technique modified from one that whalers used to kill the animals a century ago.

Agree sample research is ok. The problem is when they overdo it with commercial purposes.

I think IWC committee requires professional scientific body who really understand what research means.

I am a scientist myself. I recently read the report (more than 70 pages) on scientific whaling. I understand the data created from whaling (as per IWC guideline) will be very helpful to understand ecosystem and will have lots of benefits.
However, I do not agree that to create this data we require hunting of whales in such a large population. In modern world we do have technology as well as mordern research methods, which helps to avoid large no of sampling and same time will collect significant data.
If we really need those scientific information than we should only allow IWC under UN to hunt whales only for scientific research. Specific country should not be allowed to hunt whales in the name of science. The meat of hunted animal should not be sold in market.
