According to Statistics Iceland, no Fin Whales meat was exported during June, 2010. Hence, Mr. Loftsson’s whaling company Hvalur, still has some 1130 tons of fin whale meat in their freezers in Iceland. He has added to the inventory by killing some 70 more fin whales, which is about 850 tons, making the total close to 2000 tons. Compare that with the 2046 tons harvested by the Japanese in Antarctic waters last season and we quickly realize that Mr. Loftsson has an enormously heavy marketing challenge in Japan.
