The Faroes Fisheries Council has proposed a half-hearted regulation of the dolphin hunt suggesting a quota of 500 white-sided dolphins for 2022 and 2023. The push for a quota, rather than a ban comes in the aftermath of a mass dolphin killing in Skálafjørður last year where 1,428 animals were killed. OceanCare strongly opposes such a quota and calls for a ban on the hunting of dolphins and pilot whales and for this cruel, outdated and unnecessary practice that is killing marine mammals in European waters to cease.
