Taranaki Daily News readers have given the thumbs down to a whale-watching venture off the coast of the province.

But it was a close result.

After revelations of a Blue Whale feeding ground 20km off shore, we asked readers if they thought Taranaki was ready for an enterprise based on Kaikoura's popular and profitable whale-watching business.

Of the more than 350 people who responded 45 per cent agreed that this was a good opportunity for the region.

But the majority - 55 per cent - thought we should just leave the whales alone.
