Endangered fin whale slaughter reaches 11

Icelandic whalers have now killed up to 11 endangered fin whales since begining their hunt just over a week ago.

Four fin whales were landed at the Hvalstöðin whale processing station in Hvalfjörður, West Iceland, on Sunday 23rd June, brought in by whaling vessels Hvalur 8 and Hvalur 9, increasing the total to 11.

“It’s going fantastically well. The atmosphere here at the whaling station is great, just like in the old days,” commented manager of Hvalstöðin, Gunnlaugur F. Gunnlaugsson.

The hunt is the first for two years and, despite the international ban on commercial whaling, Iceland has set itself a quota of 184 fin whales, potentially to be killed over the next few months.
