Should Dolphin and Whale Hunting Be Banned?


In countries like the Faroe Islands and Japan, whale and dolphin hunting is a cultural tradition dating back hundreds of years. But do these hunting traditions have a place in 2020? Activists call them barbaric slaughters of vulnerable species but those that participate say it connects them to their roots. In the Faroe Islands every summer around 800 whales are killed in preparation for the winter months. LiveTribers, do you think all whale and dolphin hunting should be stopped? Are these annual hunts barbaric or do you understand the need?

    Of course the hunting should be banned. Just because Whale and Dolphin meat is a delicacy in some countries dosen't mean they should be hunted. Phill

    What was practiced in the past does not mean it should be continued. Alternatives for food supplies must be made for the future of the people and planet. Living on whales may have been all these people had as a food source in the past but in the here and now many other foods are available and the technology to produce a sustainable supply.

    It has been banned in many countrys but there are a few that still do it. I think it should be banned everywhere but some cultures are not like us and who are we to tell them to change their ways? We can only try to convince them it's wrong.

    Definitely it must be stopped no question about it . There is no need whatsoever for this to continue . I can't help thinking when a wild life species kills one human the nets are erected , the chase is on . And all the while it is the human who has invaded the habitat of the magnificent wild life . Is man " STUPID " or what ?The only thing that connects these people with this behaviour is that " OLD HABITS DIE HARD " . The only thing that connects man to his roots is his D.N.A.

    Just because it is a tradition or part of our history doesn't mean it is right and should continue. This is no different than the removal of symbols of slavery. It wasn't right and should be removed from the glamorous and honourable public places.This doesn't mean that we are removing the symbols or person from history. Those things will always be there in the history books. The bad things in our history help make us better and should not be ignored or removed but they should not be idealized in public. So YES It should be banned.

    Controlled or culturally acceptable killing of animals like seals and dolphins by indigenous inhabitants, while often generating strong feelings of outrage by "outsiders" are long established cultural patterns. These native folk have followed these hunting traditions for thousands of years, with the target species not only providing food, but also often skins for clothing, and certain body parts for medicinal purposes etc..even the dung used as fuel. Sadly, basic human greed has often resulted in "overkilling" but by and large, outsiders have no right to interfere in these traditional hunting programs.

    Apart from the inhumanity of such actions, there is no positive side of them either. In fact the ocean is under threat from overfishing generally, and cannot continue to sustain indiscriminate commercial fishing. Whales & dolphins are sentient creatures so such actions are culpable and akin to murder imho.

    Almost every country in the world has banned whale hunting and for a very good reason - they are facing extinction. There are a lot of practices that go back hundreds of years but that doesn't make them any less cruel or barbaric. There is no place in the modern world (or the old one for that matter) for this type of slaughter and enlightened countries recognise that and act accordingly. Even Spain is cutting out bull fighting for example. Japan should ban this practice immediately.

    The resources put into the gathering of whale produce and the subsequent cost in dollars and human effort, that is incurred by this cruel, outmoded practice, could be combined to educate the perpetrators into practices that garner similar results to what is achieved by hunting. (The Bison is a case in point) The collectives combined with the continual attempts at suppression of such practice, could be scaled back,and those resources put into the current worldwide abuse of Humans. Applicable to genocide, kidnapping rape murder, torture, and countless other heinous behavioral practices, that are rained down on our unfortunate neighbours, mainly due to penury, poverty and lack of worldwide empathy, for our fellow man. Do I believe that the killing of whales would ever be put aside to focus effort on the plight of people?? No I don't. Do I believe that it should? It goes without saying....

    Yes absolutely!! There are many things that were once cultural that we have since become more 'enlightened' on and stopped. It was once culturally accepted to hit your wife, or rape her, to use children for labour etc. we have since evolved. The science is extensive showing the negative effects of these practices. Ecologically it's catastrophic!!! Increased whale populations have been shown to INCREASE fish populations, to have an effect on ocean nutrition, even an effect on carbon extraction, it is vital that this practice is ended. Technically there is an international whaling ban!! Some countries just don't obey it and there are no repercussions. Besides alt the scientific evidence for their ecological importance, these are the most intelligent and sensitive of mammals, they have some of the most evolved brains. Doing this to them is inhumane and barbaric.

    Yes, just because it was custom you need to question why it is being done today. Commercial killing should be banned globally. Understand that people living in the north of the globe rely on whale meat for survival. There is no waste and they actually worship these mammals and only take what they need to survive.

    In the far north whales have been eaten for centuries and are an essential source of protein for those communities. They should be permitted to continue to use only as much as they need but perhaps the cruel killing methods have no place in a modern world. Some species need to be protected. Remember vegetable crops don't grow in the arctic circle their diet is mainly protein.

    Absolutely. It is becoming apparent that East asian food culutre has too change radically, for our sea mammals too survive. It is already in a pecarious state around the globe. Acquaculture has too be re thought. Even the inland salmon farms.There needs to be a world monototium to ensure both netting and dredging are stopped altogether. No more fushing in seas that no not directly boarder your own countries. If marine life perishes it will also reduce the food staples of our boardering Polynesian neighbours. They know when enough is enough! No one country has the right to take land from other countries too firm up their strategic locations. Either by force or coersion. Time for NATO to do their job.

    Dolphin and whale hunting is cultural for Japan. If Australian Aboriginals are permitted to hunt and eat turtles etc for cultural reasons then Japan should be given the same respect and it should not be ok for one and not the other.

    Yes, I feel any animal cruelty should be illegal and heavily penalised. This includes any animal, whether it be trophy hunting, farming (battery hens, cruelty at abbatoirs etc), dog fighting, whale spearing, cosmetic testing on animals, etc. Humans must cease to be so god dam anthropocentric. All animals deserve to live without fear of infliction of cruelty by humans. Planet Earth would blossom if all humans were removed from it. We as humans are equal to al animals, we are all living creatures on this earth. We must respect eachother, whether it be human or animal. Respect life, ALL LIFE. We do not own the Earth!!!!

    It's not like the world hasn't got food options these days, supermarkets, fresh grocers, corner stores with fast food and restaurants all serve food and stock food so you won't go hungry, I don't believe we need to kill Dolphins and Whales in this day and age for food when there's so much around. I think hanging onto some traditions has passed.....and who knows if there is a food shortage in the future eating whales and dolphins might be the option. So lets eat whats produced for now.

    Yes. the mass comercial destruction of marine life should stop. People in remote communities that depend on this animals for survival have been hunting them for years and did not deminished their numbers , they have a great deal of respect and knowledge about the environment they live in so I'm ok with them taking what they need.

    These beautiful marine animal are intelligent and gentle and it is just appalling to see how they are herded into a cove and speared/tortured. Young ones are separated from their mothers and it is horrendous to see the panic and anguish. Whales are NOT needed for scientific research and the Japanese have so many cultural traditions in place already the slaughter of these creatures can never be justified.

    I really do not agree with the ( scientific research by Japan) of whale slaughter held each year ,.. but I can accept a hunt to survive situation that is carried out by remote communities where in some area's that may well be your only source of food in certain periods of the year provided this is carried out using traditional methods , with strict numbers only to be harvested

    Cannibalism has a long human history, yet we have banned that. It’s time we grew up and banned killing of endangered species.

    see I don't think Wales nor dolphin should be banned how are we going to bend them anyway that they live in the ocean plus if you going to hunt them how do you sleep at night

    I saw this once years ago and wrote to someone I knew from that country only for the reply to be "how dare you ask me that question". I was respectful and yet she was defensive so in my view knew that is was wrong in this day and age. These creatures are beautiful as are many which are being killed for fun, sport, etc. and some decimated to the point of extinction. Mankind has a lot to answer for.

    In this day and age I can see no good reason for killing whales or dolphins. I'm sure that people can connect to their roots without killing these beautiful creatures. I think the hunts are barbaric and should be stopped immediately.

    Yes, immediately. Unfortunately, the exploiters of the world have ruined it for everyone. It's about survival of the planet now and we're all in in together.

    Yessss. The Norweigens and Japanese have been exposed as liars and mammal murderers for many years. Cultural norms are no excuse for blatant slaughter. End it NOW!!
