Why does Whaling Still Continue in Iceland Today? An Investigation into Nationalism and Cultural Differences

Description

Commercial Whaling in Iceland: -Every year, fin and minke whales are hunted in Faxafloi Bay (see fig. 1) to be sold in shops and restaurants -The meat is not eaten by locals; tourists are the biggest consumers of whale -Ironically, the whales are hunted in the same area in which whale-watching takes place -Whales (animals) are “good to think” with (Levi-Strauss 1966) meaning that the way in which people interact with the whale tells us a lot about the people themselves
