they are just really big and hold a lot of fat. kinda like americans. and they eat a lot of crill. they are obviously very important to the eco system.
No one can win at war. if either side loses a man for thier own, then that immediatly make them the killers of the innocent. we are too destructive to save ourselves. we are our own version of chaos theory without the mathimatical equations.

There are entire ecosystems centred around dead whales. A whale carcass is so enormous that it provides food for a wide range of deep sea animals for several years.

Whales eat krill, and no doubt keep krill numbers under control. However, it is worth remembering that whale numbers are so low now, compared to what they were before people started killing them, that their role in any ecology is sharply reduced.
