Kieran Mulvaney on a proposal by Nature writers.
Writing in the journal Nature last week, Christopher Costello, Steven Gaines and Leah Gerber proposed “an alternative path forward that could break the deadlock: quotas that can be bought and sold, creating a market that would be economically, ecologically and socially viable for whalers and whales alike. Because conservationists could bid for quotas, whalers could profit from whales even without harvesting the animals.”
