Icelandic fin whale slaughter now at 36

Despite the fin whale hunting season starting later than usual in Iceland, reports from the country say that a further four endangered fin whales were killed at sea earlier in the week, putting the total for this hunting season at 36.  It is thought that calm weather conditions at sea have made the slaughter relatively easy.

Iceland refuses to recognise the current ban on commercial whaling and currently allocates its whalers a quota (number it can kill) of fin whales. Lack of demand for the meat mean that most of it is exported to Japan.
