Norway suffers backlash over planned acoustic experiments on minke whales

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An international group of scientists has called on Norway to halt plans for acoustic experiments on minke whales.

They say the process of capturing the animals and subjecting them to noise will be "stressful and frightening".

The project, the largest of its kind ever attempted, is due to begin any day now.

The Norwegian authorities say the aim is to get a better understanding of the levels of noise pollution that whales can hear.

The experiments will take place in the remote Lofoten Islands.

I agree.  That's mean.  I also agree that noise pollution both in and out of water is not good but I doubt if subjecting wild animals to these experiments will end up in an effort to reduce the noise from ships.
