There was a recent article in the local newspaper about one of the biggest whale meat companies now being in deficit, further showing that whaling is neither sustainable nor very profitable. Rather than cease whaling, the paper mentioned that an increase in resources would be used to market whale meat more heavily in a continued attempt to repopularize the demand. Tourism generates a lot more money than whale meat, but politicians need to realize that many people will eventually stop visiting this beautiful country due to this issue. And Norway has so much more to offer than this archaic practice. Please take the time to e-mail Norway's Minister Of Fishing named Per Sandberg and Minister Of Tourism named Thorbjørn Roe Isaksen at POSTMOTTAK@NFD.DEP.NO! Tell them you would much rather visit Norway to see whales alive, not in a fishing market!
