需求下降冰島暫停捕鯨

anddear_news_A-55

冰島最後兩間捕鯨公司宣布今年停止捕撈,其中一間更會永久結束。這兩間公司專門捕小鬚鯨及瀕危的長鬚鯨,並主要出口到日本,但武漢肺炎的關係令他們難以運作,鯨魚肉需求下降亦令他們難與日本的漁民競爭。現時全球只有冰島、日本及挪威三個國家仍有捕鯨活動。

The last two whaling companies in Iceland announced to stop whaling this year, and one of them ends their operation permanently. These companies mainly target minke whales and endangered fin whales, and export to Japan. the recent coronavirus made it harder for them to hunt and process whale meat; the demands of whale meat dropped greatly also make it more difficult to made deals with Japan. Iceland, Norway and Japan are the only three counties that still have whaling activities.
