Capitalist economies attempt to
achieve continued economic growth through diversification

of the ways in which
natural resources are exploited This is evident in the late-capitalist
exploitation of previously untapped marine resources. Like other forms of
wildlife tourism, whale-watching has been perceived uncritically as a
non-consumptive activity. The assumption of sustainability has allowed for
unregulated and accelerating capitalist production of whale-watching to be
widely perpetuated (James E.S Higham, 2015).Whale watching educates
the all universe including children and adults about our magnificent creature
that share our world and importance of their habitat and whale watching is thus
defined as tours by boat, air or from land, formal or informal, with at least
some commercial aspects, to see, swim with, and/or listen to any of 83 species
of whales, dolphins and porpoises. And tours are that are strictly whale or
dolphin oriented. whales are important animal in the world it helps maintain
the overpopulation animals in the sea. Blue whale is the largest mammalian in
the world(97ft) it consumes approximately 40 million krill per day and everyone
can identify impact of whales to aquatic eco system if blue whale species were
to become extinct even whales poop helps to offset carbon in the atmosphere and
this provides all animals good and healthy atmosphere when we take it with an
amount that as much as 400,000 tons of carbon extracted from the whales in each
year. we can see under the whale watching we look after cetaceans. In here
cetaceans referred as whales and all the mammalians in the sea. The most famous
mammalians are in this industry we can identify, they are the humpback whales,
gray whales, northern and southern right whales, blue whales, minke whales,
sperm whales, short finned pilot whales, orcas and bottlenose dolphin.

According to the reports
whale watching supply $2.1 billion per annum in tourism revenue  (A.M.
Cisneros-Montemayor, 2010) and it is
approximately grown by 10% year by year (Simon O.Connor, 2009). This is a higher
amount when we consider this with whaling. There are only 119 countries are
available in the world to go for whale watching. Sri Lanka is one of the top 10
places for whale watching and Sri Lanka is one of the few places in the world
where, besides being able to go whale watching, swimming with blue whales.


“Whale is worth
more alive and watched than dead” ( (Hoyt, 2001)

When we study about whale tourism
the opposite side of this matter is whaling. In the 11th century
whaling became a commercial enterprise. Spanish whalers joined for the whaling
fleet from Holland England and American colonies. However, in the 19th
century whaling became an unsustainable amount. And they started to use
grenades and factory ships to catch more whales. In the 20th century
whale population highly decreased. And after this incident International
Whaling Commission(IWC) made an international Body for to control the whaling,
issued a global moratorium on commercial whaling in 1986, but Japan and Norway
continue whaling by breaching the regulations. The main factor who supports
whaling is Japan, so they have the largest whaling operation when compare other
whaling countries such as Norway, Iceland, the Danish Faeroe Islands, St. Lucia
and St. Vincent & the Grenadines are the countries which support for
whaling. Normally a larger country takes up to 1,000 whales a year. When we
study about whales, 11 species of whales are endangered. They are the beluga
whale, blue whale, bowhead whale, finback whale, gray whale, humback whale,
killer whale, narwhale, right whale, sei whale, and sperm whale. But these 11
species also do show up on some whaling list. This figure shows that how many
whales killed by men past three years for meat.
