April 1st was the first day of Norway's whaling season. So far 15 minke whales ranging 6-8 meters have been harpooned by 3 vessels. It is expected that there will be more vessels joining in on the hunt throughout the rest of the season.


The minkes along the Norwegian coast feed on a type of crustacean called copepods, which there apparently is currently an abundance of.
