European legislation has been passed which finally recognizes biodiversity in Europe and the need to support it...however , Mr.Nash says it will take years to enforce it.Meanwhile there are intuit fishermen who try to catch whales around Iceland ,and other fishermen in Denmark and Japan who still fish for whales.

Certainly there are errors in fishing but how do you feel about people actively killing whales?
Do you think they will have a chance once Europe finally gets these new laws enforced?
Some scholars think that the intuit should be treated as a "special case" and allowed to fsh for whales. What do you think?
