In the meantime at the International Whaling Commission in Brazil... A bid to create a whale sanctuary in the South Atlantic Ocean was defeated by Japan and other pro-whaling nations.

    This is the truth Japan has overfished all its Fisheries it's a fact their own people themselves and culture has nothing to do with sustainability unless it's natural in all forms Wild

    Tell them to make fish farms instead of destroying our ocean cleaners we need whales in the ocean not in bellies, absolutely disgusting destroying our gentle monsters of the ocean

    Tradition huh?!? It used to be tradition to murder women who were labelled witches. It used to be tradition to rape and pilage and commit genocide of neighbouring tribes. It used to be tradition worship the moon and celebrate the sun at their solstices. It used to be tradition to sacrifice humans to appease gods for the benefit of seasons yet to come. Tradition has no place in modern society. They are archaic out of touch practices which serve no purpose apart from greed and nostalgia. The nation's which still wish to hunt and kill whales in the name of tradition are not living in the modern era. They are remnants of a past which needs to be forgotten, not held in esteem in the name of tradition.

    Everyone hates on America while we try our best to help everyone and all the other countries like china and india destroy the planet with mass overpopulation and pollution...but sure go ahead and blame us for your self destructive tendencies... our ocean life is literally dying and depleting. from radiation and toxic waste from China allong with over harvesting of sea life and their air quality is so bad you can't even see the sky in most places... 3/4 of people in India are starving to death and continue to have children leaving them with the same fate allong with killing off endangered animals .....slavery and mass genocide customs are alive and well in africa and a huge part of russia is radioactive.... Yet again tell me how this is Americas fault? And you wonder why we want to build a damn wall smh..đŸ€Š

    I can understand Iceland, Norway whaling. I can understand Alaskan whaling. It's a culture. Really it's a culture for them. The indigenous people of Japan are Ainu people. They have not whaled. Nope, it's not a part of indigenous people culture. I know so. It's a fabrication on the Japanese government to say it is a culture. This is modern practice and nothing to do with indigenous practice. Whaling will not end on this planet because it is a culture for many people. Just as hunting has been a culture for many indigenous people. They have their rights to be who they are. Commercial whaling can stop now. There's one way to end "commercial whaling". 100% economic sanctions. If the entire UN body agrees for 100% economic sanctions against Japan until Commercial Whaling ends, it will end that year.

    I've been a prominent anti whaling voice in Japan and suffered death threats quite a few dozens of times. The industry is funded and protected by violent people that put a lot of money in the bank. The main source of massive income comes from France. Yes, France that uses the bladder to make their perfume. If whale bladders used perfumes were mandated to label it. I sense people won't buy it. End of the game. Speaking of whale meat or dolphin meat, they taste like rubber. They are much cheaper than Kobe beef but tasted awful. The younger generation won't even touch it. So, it's up to EU labeling... As soon as France stops importing bladder, the number of whaling will go down. Trust me, it will.

    Cultures and traditions must be changed or even dropped in a changing world.

    So sad. These communities have been living without commercial whaling, although it seems there has been siignificant 'research'. Why go backwards Japan?

    They need protein, and they know how to do this and have the equipment. If the plan is to change, they need new plans.

    How much research can you do on so many whales. I think one would be good enough. I see Hiroshima wasn't a good enough listen

    Japan if killing a whale is a livelihood for your culture.. They I guess the United States has a right as well to drop another bomb on your country. Its only fare its America's livelihood to keep whales protected.
