Japan to commence whaling mission

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on November 17, 2007

Japan has confirmed that it will carry out its largest whaling programme in the South Pacific.
The mission, expected to draw strong protests from environmentalists, will depart on Sunday and breaks a 44-year moratorium on hunting humpback whales.

Japan’s fisheries ministry said the fleet had instructions to kill up to 1,000 whales, including 50 humpbacks.

Greenpeace wont be the only shadows and impediments to the Whalers, the Kiwi’s and the Aussies take a dim view of the Japanese who inhabit the North Pacific, coming into the Southern Ocean and whaling.

The Austrailians and the New Zealanders regard the Southern Ocean as their bailiwick. I happen to agree, what if the Icelanders or Norweigian fisheries industries ordered their ships into the Atlantic, technically open water, but they are long established North American fishing grounds. Not to mention the fact that the Japanese are going to be doing something despicable, hunting the whale. Im no liberal, but leave the friggin’ whale alone..
