Shipping company vows not to transport anymore whale meat

A shipment of fin whale meat from Iceland to Japan is to be returned after a controversy surrounding paperwork caused the cargo to be removed at the port of Hamburg, Germany.

German customs officials impounded the meat (which had been listed as ‘frozen fish’ on some cargo documents) but, by the time the correct paperwork was obtained a second vessel that was to take the cargo to Japan had sailed. Following a public outcry in Germany, the company involved in the shipment from Iceland, Samskip has now decided that it will stop transporting whale meat to Europe.
