Here is the first official news from norway! As unfortunately expected, whaling is in full progress there.
The situation on 25.May: The whaling vessels Reinebuen, Reinefangst and the Ann Brita are on the hunt. We are very likely these boats killed the 37 whales that where mentioned in the press. The Unstad Junior is traveling the fjord to Tromsø and will maybe go out on the north atlantic walehunting in the direction to Spitzbergen.
26.May: The Rowenta is preparirg to go out hunting. The deck is covered with planks, to beware that the whale meat is not coming in contact with the vanish.
27.May: The whaling vessels Reinebuen and Ann Brita have returned to Reine. Their cargo has been loaded in Svolvaer.
28.May: Infront of the whaling factory in Svolvaer whale blubber was floating in the harbour, it is against the law to dump blubber that way! In this fat, the subcutaneaus fat, a lot of pollutants are retained within. In the past it happened very often, that tons of this blubber that was sold was forbidden for the reason of its dramatic poisoning.
More news coming soon. ( „The ocean is unusually quiet at the moment – just the detornations of the fuel search every eight seconds“ )
