"Workers in Iceland hose down an endangered fin whale"

Err, yeah, like, it's sitting on a bloody platform out of the water - I'd say it's endangered...

Anyway, as one who has eaten whalemeat (and come to think of, the flesh of quite a number of endangered critters), I can honestly say that:
1) I am sure that the people of iceland know what they are doing, and
2) I can't see what all the fuss is about.

After all, whale tastes better than seal.

You ARE being objectionable just for the sake of it aren't you Stel? Is this part two of an ongoing anti-BBC rant?

err, no and no.

If the Icelanders want to hunt whales and they feel that they can do it in a sustainable way, then let them do it. They are advanced enough to look after their resources.

I find the use of the word "endangered" in the article a little amusing.
