Whales worth Billions more alive than dead

Whales are worth more alive than deadIf you fancy going whale watching you had better do so soon before the morons in charge of whaling decide to make it legal again… Go to http://www.greenpeace.org/

Before the 1986 moratorium, tens-of-thousands of whales were killed each year. Since the moratorium, the rogue whaling nations of Japan, Iceland, and Norway have continued to slaughter about 1,900 whales annually, in contempt of international law.

Why you may ask, when whale watching brings in billions of dollars annually to coastal economies around the world — far more income than whale hunting —

“It does not make good “eco-nomic” sense. “Bottom-line, whales are worth more alive than dead. The economic advantages weigh firmly on the side of whale watching, not whale hunting.”

Japan claims it only hunts whales for ‘scientific’ reasons. Yet the body for which the “research” is being done, the International Whaling Commission (IWC), does not need the data, and has called for the programme to be ended.

All the meat from caught whales, except sperm whale meat, which is too toxic to eat, will be sold on the open market in Japan.

The “Japanese researchers” sold 3,000 tonnes of whale meat last year for US$52 million.
