It is believed there are maximum of 25,000 blue whales in the world and only five hybrids have been in identified in Iceland since 1986.
Sea Shepherd UK chief operating officer Robert Read demanded DNA samples be taken from the Hvalur 8's equipment, meat stocks, and storage to prove it illegally killed a blue whale. "This should be a final wake-up call to Iceland that commercial whaling does not belong in the 21st century", she added.
An Icelandic whaling company has been accused of slaughtering an endangered blue whale in a "deplorable act", provoking anger and condemnation from the worldwide marine conservationist community.
During this year's season, Sea Shepherd said Hvalur hf had killed 22 whales.
"Photographs point to the fact that it's a hybrid whale and we're nearly certain that it is one, but we can't be sure until autumn when we get it DNA tested", he said, according to ABC News.

Phillip Clapham, head of cetacean assessment at the Marine Mammal Laboratory in Seattle, studied photographs of the whale caught by Hvalur and said it was likely to be a blue whale, not a hybrid.
However, the company does not have any legal authority to kill endangered blue whales, even within Iceland, Sea Shepherd said. "There were no characteristics of a blue whale, it is very easy to tell a blue whale in the ocean. Hybrids are not a protected species". Simmonds, said: "This bad incident comes as Japan is rumoured to be planning an attempt to overturn the global moratorium on commercial whaling, and clearly speaks to how utterly inappropriate it is for countries to even contemplate allowing a large-scale return to this grossly inhumane and haphazard industry".
'This man must be stopped from ruthlessly violating global conservation law and bringing such disrepute to the nation of Iceland.
Blue whales were nearly hunted to extinction last century and there are only 10,000 to 25,000 left alive. One has not been slaughtered for more than 50 years.
