Re: Fishery or abomination?
It is now 2006 and whaling has had its time, as you know, over a period of time some things change on their own and some things need to be revisited and revised to accomendate current situations, i.e. supply and demand, taxes, political and environmental issues, ETC... I am under the impression the whales are less and less over the years. Perhaps it is time for the Japanese to change their diet, why wait till there are few whales left they may as well be ahead of the game. Of course, the importance of not eating whale would have to made very clear to them. Maybe a plan could be set in place where only on even years whaling was allowed. I would place hefty fines and licenses revoked for a period of two years on those caught whaling on an odd year. Whales could then swim about for one odd year worry-free and maybe we would have more of them.
I believe India has quite many cattle and how nice they are special there able to live. I don't believe cattle are on the way-out list maybe that is why we kill them to eat. If they were to become extinct I'm sure we would go without hamburgers but poor-rich McDonald's would surely go out of business.
Anyone or thing that is killed suffers the same result is death.
