Japan plans to hunt fewer whales in Pacific

4 posts in this topic

Japan will target fewer whales when its Pacific hunt begins next week and will observe them in the Antarctic next season with the aim of resuming full-fledged commercial whaling, the fisheries minister said Friday.

The announcement underscored that Japan hasn't abandoned its plans to continue whaling in both oceans for research purposes, an allowed exception to a global ban on commercial whaling. Last month, the International Court of Justice ordered Japan to suspend its Antarctic program because it was virtually commercial, not scientific as Japan had contended.

They claimed to do research but after all they are still eating them, it might have been the research "how fast can we eat a whale".

It really needs to stop, although I think they will just continue illegally..
