    Interesting, I wonder if the eventual goal isn't amphibians like the article says but in fact whales.

    Most likely the eventual goal is to include all kinds of organisms, it would be a huge advancement. Just thinking about fish there are a lot of species where this technique would be a huge economic advantage. In comparison whales would be a very poor application, you would still need a whale of a close species to transplant the spermatogonia, deal with the mammalian reproductive physiology (much more difficult than laying eggs) and raise the calf in captivity. The most difficult parts of the process would be still the same.
