Demand for Icelandic whale meat has decreased dramatically since Japan — Iceland’s main market, especially for fin whale meat — returned to commercial whaling in 2019 after a three-decade hiatus.

This is a hugely welcome statement from Iceland’s Fisheries Minister, Svandís Svavarsdóttir:
"There is little to justify allowing whaling after 2024"

Jumping for joy:
At last, Iceland will stop the pointless slaughter of whales from 2024.
They earn £20million a year from whale watching yet have continued to kill endangered species, essential for ocean health, simply to sell at a loss to Japan. pic.twitter.com/OBNpykWBcO

Overdue, but good news that Iceland will stop whaling by 2024 … that just leaves Norway and Japan.
