17. Whale Meat Is Repurposed As Pet Food
There are a vast majority of products that are derived from different parts of a whale and most of them are repurposed.
With the decline in the legal usage of whale-derived raw material and lack of demand in the current market, while whaling itself decreased, most whale parts were eventually rendered extras.
A whale is a mammoth creature, although many parts are used, there is still a lot of meat, bones, and carcass that is left unsold. These tragically filter down to be used as pet food, something unnecessary considering other more sustainable options.
