somebody sat there finally it was definitely them. two is not as good then fine a ski was sunk to me anymore see how me like every five years did i have a credit limit on the bottle or off my bottle are going to be done at military i mean your p.b.s. is she said but sia i have a hunch fog the same good teacher will bend finest we will do it again or even the writer will. know schools euclidian will do as long as you. make something up and.
it. is just down like the wailing station now on the end of this pier here this is where they oh by the old dog. these are vicious groups and every sheesh david kill you if you can't learn. are these two. two males i think. we don't want to see any more than whales being needlessly so it is obsolete by rick. resource utilization for me. as his thoughts why shouldn't he utilize. we have an appointment with a man who many hate and despise christian lofts and is iceland's uncrowned will king he catches fin whales and endangered species it's been
a family tradition for seventy is a vision is the fucking house full of the procession of the woods and he had been here in this location all the time she went in for the wonder stuff that we have a full of around one hundred ninety since the season started in june he's two ships have killed one hundred thirty whales every mostly the coupons that. so it made much good he said film review and watch them both of them voted to last since operations are under constant surveillance to activists from marine conservation and juicy shot but a keeping a close eye on how many whales are being killed and always have to think about why all this evidence of this about ten years just they've just fascinated me. oh. love it just. the thought of it. we think it's a question often. people like him think they can just get away with everything
absolutely everything you know you just does not. think that's him. the coming days a crucial karen come out and josh riley. in a few days since palm had to catch fin whales expires and the activists are trying to prevent him from renewing it that would put an end to his wavelength he has a quote from the icelandic government that he can go out and kill these endangered species you know they are an endangered species so why does he get to do it people need to know what's going on you know a local would realise that the still goes on. for most. of them. in the past see shepherds campaigns have been controversial with some critics even labeling its tactics of direct action and sabotage as environmental terrorists and
. these pictures are from two thousand and eight sea shepherd is attacking japanese fishermen. smugglers the first time i've been here and i just think it is an amazing. just breathtaking play and it's just this area but to spoil the whole of iceland. the man down there on the poor. thing will be pulling it no. the fin whale is the second largest animal in the world. it can be up to twenty six meters long and weigh up to eighty tons. decades of overfishing have endangered it as a species. lost some catches only fin whales making him particularly controversial. the loudest
ugly way in countries out of all x. whales able whale themselves. couldn't manage anything because their greed was too much quote unquote of course. we want them to lay on a ridge with this stuff on this this side to the plant where one of your tribal totem on. the international whaling commission considers the stocks around iceland healthy this is why iceland allows whaling. every way stocks are. healthy you have a certain harvest you have or if you it's not sustainable you don't have the start it's as easy as a. veil is put into the gun they have. made fun of. words and it penetrates through the into the animal in the cavity it explodes inside and kills the. cop and weighs more
than sixty kilos one shot kills most whales sometimes two or three shots a needed. japanese whalers a seen here shooting a fin whale in two thousand and eight. japan a new way of the only other countries to have commercial whaling. japan calls it research. these three countries defy the moratorium on commercial whaling that was issued in one thousand nine hundred six when several species when their extinction. iceland resumed whaling in two thousand and six this was the reaction when the first strip arrived back at the docks with its catch all the year scientific outlook on our sites all over the ideas only to harvest the waste on the basis of sustainability and over the all of the precautionary approach
. oh my head off and on and. on i've got a lot of that. are going to have to wear heading out with totally furred auto johansson to see whales that are alive we use in a scene make us backwards in a way to know where those white big dolphins for five years the young captain has made a living from taking tourists on will watching tourists. it has become a lucrative business in iceland even bigger than whaling. and lord suffer got the bill which i think you forgot that last year three hundred seventy thousand tourists went on whale safari is in iceland there is again. what for that. your
coach it's worth their weight because they weren't going to work their rights it was quite real and it's worth it i'm a joy. icelanders were in favor of whaling for a long time but an increasing number and now against it like totally from being shot with are pulled and drawn since. it's not my way and i don't like. in june two thousand and eighteen poll showed icelandic public opinion on whaling is now evenly split one third in favor one third against and undecided away what's in the industry gives way more jobs on the way more money for everyone it's just a no we can see all the you the same out of all four hundred dollars a year still didn't you notice anything. are you curious to try it and system now.
you were not in the open wheels are definitely like majestic animal and i think it's cruel punishment oeuvre it's basically cruel and unusual punishment to hunt them and expressly if they're eating them always on momma's on and they deserve equal respect like us we are not listen they deserve the same respect as us and they maintain an ecosystem and i think we have to respect that ecosystem and nature so to me that's a complete no no i slung that says in in a small scale and they don't want to extinct the race then i don't mind do you see the boat over there. what is that that's the whaling boat that i figured it's going out. according to turn the third whaling is detrimental to whale tourism. would go get angry responses with council a sincere old saying that. i thought this horrible woman never going to go there. for me whaling is not a cultural thing. and eating would mean there's no culture. for
his. part christian lotzen doesn't believe that whaling damages tourism he says the number of tourists has risen from under five hundred thousand in two thousand and ten to over two million last year. what is to say i say is when you think it's due to release why not people are interested to come and see and taste with me they don't get it anywhere in the world and they are saying the whaling is affecting the tourist industry some of these people. can be this is going on average says. farmer likes to see you know you like the whales to go through of course i'm sure there would be some people who say that you don't yeah i mean i don't care less about
that i've been vaccinated for a long time go this we call it japanese plague it's. so different from the. like this one here this is the glee i guess it's better to use this force from the only one for. i heard are they about to do that i don't think their government i think i'll go over thank you ok. now i'll. just take it in the skin i'll. see shepherds.
