Bluefin Harpooner

“Blue\fin whale hybrids are relatively rare, Icelandic authorities confirm that five hybrids have been identified by researchers since 1986 around Iceland. Four of these were killed by Icelandic whalers.”

Just to be sure.


“Iceland is to increase its whaling quota … [even though] Icelanders eat little whale meat, and most of the catch is sent to the Japanese market where it is stockpiled in freezers due to lack of demand.” (

However when the species are extinct the demand may pick up.
