AMASTERDAM/TOKYO: Bogus whale 'researchers' return to port with us$ 33 million-worth catch
A factory ship loaded with 2,000 tons of meat from whales caught in an Antarctic whale sanctuary is scheduled to arrive in Japan early morning 11th April. The ship is operated by a private organisation set up by Japan's whaling industry and subsidised by the Fisheries Agency of Japan, which claims the whaling is for scientific purposes. "To call this whaling 'scientific' is an insult to science," said John Frizell of Greenpeace. "Japan claims that the 'research' is conducted for the International Whaling Commission (IWC), however the IWC's scientists - including all of its Japanese scientists - have unanimously agreed that they don't need the information produced".
