CEO of Icelandic whaling company Hvalur H/F says that it’s business as usual for whalers in Iceland and that Obama’s statement on whaling in Iceland is nothing new, reportsVísir.

As reported, The White House has issued a new statement on Iceland’s whale hunting, outlining a number of actions the US plans to take in response.

However, CEO of Icelandic whaling company Hvalur H/F, Kristján Loftsson, says the statement is nothing new.

“This is just business as usual. It’s nothing new,” Kristján said.”This is the fifth time we get this type of warning [from the White House]. The wording is more or less the same [as before].”

Although Japan recently halted their whaling activities as a result of a UN ICJ whaling ban, Hvalur H/F’s ship Alma is currently transporting 2000 tonnes of whale meat to Japan.
