The practice of dolphin fishing in the Faroe Islands has led to close scrutiny after killing more than 1,400 dolphins in one day, in what is believed to be a record catch.

A group of white-faced dolphins were forced to swim into the largest fjord in the North Atlantic region on Sunday.

They were followed by boats in the shallow waters of Skalapentor Beach in Estoroy, where fishermen killed the dolphins with knives.

Fishermen dragged their bodies ashore to distribute to local people for consumption.
