549 Minke Whales Killed This Year by Norwegian Whalers

"Norway killed 549 minke whales this year, in defiance of a global moratorium on commercial whaling that has been in place since 1986. In January [2001], Norway announced it would lift the ban on whale product exports, but it has yet to resume international trade in whale meat." (Excerpt from the Environment News Service article, Dec. 17, 2001)
