You might wanna look into your own humpback farm at some point. Larger colonies can be voracious eaters.
They look fairly easy to breed. Maybe.
Humpback whale breeding needs 78 permits. I recommend you just buy from a breeder. Never buy from WhaleStakes.com because they harass their whales.
Humpback farms are a very popular topic of conversation in the Pinkomyrmex community. Given my direct relationship & involvement with this community, I'd be willing to share a little about what I know. First, I would definitley recommend investing in one of these farms; they can be slightly difficult to maintain but in the end they're worth it.
The logistics are surprising not nearly as complicated as one may expect. The 'seventy-eight' permit myth is a common misconception, as this only applies to breeding & keeping blue whales (which Pinkomyrmex kiwicus prefer; good luck Martialis ), For P. floyderus humpback farms, you only need a couple. A big setback for most people is actually the physical size of the farms. Some keepers keep their whales in areas that measure out to around 1-2 mi2, but I prefer to breed them in slightly large spaces. My farm is roughly 62.46x106 mi2, right in between California and Japan.
There are a couple other setbacks, but none as significant as the size limitations. I would agree with Alabama Anter as well, never purchase from 'Whalestakes.com". For one, they deliver steaks which P. floyderus don't appreciate as much as the whales whole, two, they do exhibit particularly harmful keeping & maintenance techniques, and three, they're not really too great with the whole spelling thing.
If you get past the size limitation, give me a shout so we can further discuss some keeping requirements. The guy who sold me my space actually actually recommended some prime real-estate available somewhere between the East Coast of the U.S. and England. Let me know how it works out for you. Click here for a little more information about the space, if you're interested.
