The main threat to porpoise is being caught in nets, though porpoise flesh is hunted consumed by Greenlanders and is attributed to the low incidence of cardiovascular disease in Greenland <a href='http://www.highnorth.no/Library/Culture/or-ea-me.htm'>(Further information)</a>. You can still find Harbour Porpoise for sale at the Market in Nuuk, along with seal and whale.
