When one thinks of a whaling country, Japan comes to mind, however there are other less known countries who also allow whaling. While Japan hunts whale for "scientific research", countries like Norway and Iceland openly hunt for commercial purposes.

It would be good if there were laws to reduce the whaling quotas.... or better, protect them.

noted. We must protect the whales. They are very important in the food chain.

Yes it is political. Just like Harper announcing an increase in quota of seals that can be slaughtered, even as thousands of pups are dieing because there is no ice in the St. Lawrence. Political for Japan as well as they are forbiden to have a military so the next best thing is to wage war on whales.

Please remember Peter Bethune sitting in a Japanese jail as we speak as well as the hundreds of whales, mothers and calfs, that right now are alive and swimming FREE in the oceans, because of Sea Shepherd.
