Whaling. Whale hunting at the Faroe Islands. A boy sits on the carcass of a whale while other whale carcasses are pulled ashore by boats. Whaling on the Faroe Islands exploits the migratory nature of whales. A whale species enters the waters around the Faroes once a year on it's migratory path. The Islanders use boats to force the whales into estuaries where the whales run aground and are trapped. The islanders slaughter the whales which are used for food and agriculture. The Faroes are a group of islands in the North Atlantic between the Shetland Islands and Iceland.
