A Minke Whale steak.
This report in Icelandreview, of a report on the economics of whaling in Iceland (see account in Icelandic here), suggests that the hunting of whales for their meat is of net economic benefit to the Icelandic economy and that it is not putting off whale-watching tourists.
The latter suggestion is difficult to evaluate without a full reading of the report, and it might well be true, but I would just point out that it is a difficult thing to assess. The fact that whale watching has increased over recent years cannot of itself be regarded as strong evidence for lack of a negative impact of whaling on the Icelandic economy. How would you measure the number of people boycotting Icleand because of whaling? As I say, I can’t read the report to find out how this was tackled, but it does need to be tackled properly.
There are some interesting facts about whaling in Iceland in the article too.
Several Minke Whale steaks, bones, connective tssue, blood etc swimming around.
