Where does whaling occurr in this world?
Most places with water and whales. The Pacific Ocean is a popular spot, especially down near Antarctica
um i did a debate in year 7 about this topic that all whaling should be banned i was saying that this was true and my team argument was not all whaling should be banned but most this means commercial whaling should be banned and whaling don by tribes and for food may still continue. ps my team won the debate .and i would say some whaling should be allowed but not all whaling hope…
The International Whaling Commission is the agency responsible for introducing the ban on commercial whaling. In 1982 the commission agreed the 'The 1986 Moritoriam' which effectively banned commercial whaling from 1986, although Scientific and Aboriginal subsistence whaling is still allowed under strict quotas.
Whaling has been an activity for thousands of years, archealogical discoveries in South Korea suggest evidence of whaling occuring as early as 6000 BC. Commercial whaling is widely though to have begun in the late 1800s and early 1900s with the invention of various whaling devices such as the flexible harpoon and steam winches.
Until the late 20th Century it was but due to the 1986 Commercial Whaling ban, only a few countries are still Whaling, which makes what their activities illegal despite claiming that they are doing it for cultural or scientific purposes, which is in general aloud as a loophole in the commercial whaling ban.
