Purpose of Whaling
In the few recent years there has been many campaigns against whaling mainly towards the three main commercial whalers (Japan, Norway and Iceland). However, countries such as Japan reasoned that the purpose of their act of whaling was for scientific purposes and that they had no right to criticise their culture. Norway & Iceland on the hand is seen to ignore the Moratorium for whaling completely as they continue commercial whaling.
What whaling is used for?
Throughout the ages whale products has been used for many purposes with it playing a large part in our industry. However, in the recent years many countries have only hunted whales for scientific purposes with few hunting whales for commercial uses.
