Since the moratorium on commercial whaling decided by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in 1982, its activity has been characterised by measures which aim at protecting whales instead of encouraging their exploitation. After recalling some of the features of the 1946 International Convention on the Regulation of Whaling (ICRW) and the problems concerning its implementation, the article deals with some recent developments in the framework of the IWC's practice. It illustrates the different positions of the IWC's members who want to whale the abundant species and of those who want to ban whaling for good. Finally, the article contains some tentative comments about this difference of opinion and its consequences.
