Japan Kills 251 Minke Whales In Final Antarctic Hunt

Recommended Posts

TOKYO - Japan killed 251 minke whales during the 2014 Antarctic hunt, in what is expected to be the last "research whaling" mission in the Southern Ocean after an international court ruling.

 

According to data released by Japan’s Fisheries Agency on Tuesday, the catch was more than double last year’s tally of 103 minke whales, but much smaller than the target of 935.

 

The whalers caught no fin whales during the hunt, which ran between January 3 and March 13, the agency said.

 

Japan is a signatory to the International Whaling Commission (IWC), which bans commercial hunting, but has insisted its operation was research -- even though it acknowledged the meat from the animals ended up on dinner tables. :angryfire:

OK, it was research...move on...251 whales, that's a lot of research!

 

Seriously. That should be enough to last them for the next century ...or four.
