Plans by Norway to export 10 to 15 tonnes of minke whale products to Iceland have been condemned by UK fisheries minister Elliot Morley. Norway has announced that it will issue an export licence to a whaling company despite the fact that the whale stocks the blubber will come from are on an international endangered species list; Appendix 1 of the Convention on Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). Norway and Iceland have a reservation to this listing.
