Iceland Stops Whale-Hunting for Now

(Sept. 2007) Due to the low demand for whale meat, Iceland has decided to stop whale-hunting at least until the market demand increases and Japan issues an export license. According to Iceland's fisheries minister, Einar K. Guofinnsson, "There is no reason to continue commercial whaling if there is no demand for the product."

Iceland’s decision to stop whale-hunting is a clear example of the power the consumer has. As children of God, we are called to be compassionate and merciful; therefore, we should not support those industries that cause unnecessary suffering to God’s animals.
