Record #171053:

Berjumst fyrir tilveru okkar / Anon.

Title: Berjumst fyrir tilveru okkar / Anon.
Translated title: We must fight for our existence.
Date: 2004.
Language: Icelandic.
In: Aegir. (2004.), Vol. 97(1) (2004)
Abstract: Hördhur Sigurbjarnarsson, who runs a whale watching business at Húsavík, is interviewed about future. He says that it is quite clear that in future it will not be possible to go whaling off Iceland and offer tourists whale watching in same waters. He says that there could be international agreement to separate an area for watching, e.g. north of island, and leave whaling for western waters. In Norway, sperm and killer whales are watched, but minke are hunted. 50-60 people are now employed in watching at Húsavík and have preserved oak boats for it.
