Vessels set sail as Japan resumes commercial whaling

  • Japan began its first commercial whale hunts in more than three decades, brushing aside outrage over its resumption of a practice that conservationists call cruel and outdated.
  • The first whale has been caught.
  • The country’s Fisheries Agency said it had set a cap for a total catch of 227 whales through the season until late December 2019.
  • The hunts come after Japan’s withdrawal from the International Whaling Commission, a move slammed by anti-whaling activists but welcomed by Japanese whaling communities.
  • Whaling has long proved a diplomatic flashpoint for Tokyo, which says the practice is a Japanese tradition that should not be subject to international interference.
