I have read that the fish population in the North Atlantic has suffered from over-fishing. I think commercial fishing would best be called "fish catching". The catch is just scooped up on a much larger scale than the old nets.

It stands to (my) reason that the same will happen to whales. They are not like bamboo or rabbits as they don't reproduce quickly. Iceland is not the only country killing them.

And the changes in ocean waters via pollution don't help.

I'm not sure that stopping whale hunting would destroy the economy of the countries that are so actively involved.

"Watching", not "catching".

I'm sorry, when you've seen one whale's tail you've seen

them all, unless you get lucky with a different species of whale. I did it off Massachusetts years ago, and came back with the most boring pictures in the world.

Not really...That's about the only thing that is different between one member of a certain type of whale and another member.

That's one way (I think the main way) they distinguish one from another, the markings on the tail.

What if the whale was crashing down on your boat? Devil
