Whale meat sold out

According to Fréttabladid, whale meat is sold out in Iceland. “Everything we had is gone, but the meat is probably available in the freezers of some supermarkets,” said Gunnar Bergmann, the director of the Association for Whale Hunters, when asked if whale meat was sold out.

Gunnar said that the supplies of the association, from the year 2004, are now finished in the wake of a recent marketing campaign. He said that scientific whaling only yielded a few tonnes of marketable meat every year. He said that he was optimistic that the supply would double this summer since the plan is to hunt 50 – 70 whales compared to the 39 hunted last summer.
