Go Sea Shepherds. Looking forward to the new season!

The Japanese are outright l y i n g about their activities. They should face international sanctions and consequences.
God Bless the Sea Shepherds!

I just wonder how much "research" is done in the two or three seconds a whale is onboard a factory ship before its butchery begins. If any research is being done, it's byJapanese Iron Chefs, not aboard these vessels.

I agree with some subsistence whaling such as by the Eskimos and the residents of Greenland - they do it to survive. The Japanese do it solely to satisfy their taste for whale meat - it needs to stop.

Now that would be a good Iron Chefs episode. I see a cross over in the future.

Well hundreds of peer reviewed research papers have been produced, so I guess they do a lot of research in those two or three seconds. Well except we all know you are lying and just made up those numbers.

The Japanese have done enough phony research! They need to find another food source and leave the whales alone before they become extinct.

Sea Shepard is attempting to stop, what they perceive to be, an illegal activity. The quota is approved. The actual reasons for such a high quota for Japan are disputed. I do not believe the Japanese government provides sufficient information, to make a determination in their favor. I believe, without solid proof, the high quota is solely at the behest of consumer, not scientific, demand. Arrogance.

Correct. it is clear from watching "Whale Wars" thet he japanese are not doing any research on these whales.

Whale meat is being openly sold on the Japanese market.

Except they are not authorized by any national or international governmental entity to be a law enforcement agency. Therefore, what they are doing is not law enforcement, but rather vigilantism. It would be like me pulling people over and giving out speeding tickets when I am not a police officer.

More like tackling an armed bank robber when there are no cops around to handle the situation.

Just went whale watching with my son in California channel islands. We had such a great time watching the amazing gray whales. How these people can kill such amazing animals really borders on mass murder. Although I am against violence and typically not an animal rights kind of guy, although people that hurt animals should be jailed, I think the whaling industry is evil and should be stopped.

Eskimo whaling is not an industry, it is subsistence. Merely wanted to delineate the two.

I wish Sea Shepard could get a Klingon Bird of Prey, battle ready with an operational cloaking device.

Have you seen the show? If the Sea Shepherds had explosives they would sink themselves before they got out of the harbor.

You're just jealous that the whales have a higher I.Q. than you do.

The Japanese are also involved in slaughtering dolphins, below is a link showing videos which document dolphin slaughtering in Taji, Japan. There are also several other links, one involving the skinning of Racoon Dogs in China....can anyone reply that this is humane or just "cultural tradition"?

If you can watch the first video showing the live skinning of Racoon Dogs in China and say that this is OK, then you deserve whatever is coming to you.

Below is a full length movie called "Earthlings" involving the cruelty of animals by us. Go to the "Eartlings website or the American Humane Society website and type in Animal Cruelty.

http://veg-tv.info/Earthlings

Here's a link to the ASPCA with numerous animal/farm animal cruelty video documentation. (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

http://www.aspca.org/fight-animal-cruelty/farm-animal-cruelty/

These videos are shocking, cruel and horrifying but reveal truth.....and truth leads to change in the right hands.

If you choose to not eat meat after watching these videos there are alternatives to factory farmed animals/meat called free range/organic meat, which comes from animals raised in a free range/organic HUMANE fashion such as free range/grass fed cattle etc.

You can buy this type of meat/produce at local food co-ops etc.

These are horrifying videos, and unfortunately, they show the truth about our treatment of earth's creatures--and even the earth itself. FF

If you don't have access to local food co-ops, where can you get free range/organic meat from places that treat their animals humanely?

Direct action will always have its detractors, but to my thinking there is nothing more disgusting than the Japanese l.i.e that is "cetacean research".

This conflict did not start a few years ago with activists throwing stink bombs on television. Japan has been violating and subverting international whaling regulations since the 1930s.

Japan has historically violated size limits, species protections, sanctuary boundaries, seasonal limits, all manner of quotas and even facilitated pirate whaling all over the world (that's front companies with foreign labor killing whales in secret with no respect for regulations and then smuggling the unreported meat back to Japan - so much for tradition).

Today, Japan justifies a continuation of this long history of violations with a loophole, intended for scientific research, despite an internationally established moratorium on commercial whaling. The whalers kill endangered Sei whales, endangered Fin whales, vulnerable Sperm whales, Bryde's whales, common minke whales (many from the vulnerable J-stock), and Antarctic minke whales. Japan also imports the meat of endangered Fin whales from Iceland making it the world market for whale meat in defiance of other international treaties like CITES.

In 1988 Reagan enacted sanctions against Japan over its bogus "scientific" whaling programs. Several international legal panels have concluded the whaling violates international treaties. Australia has filed against Japan's whaling with the International Court of Justice. The International Whaling Commission has made repeated calls for Japan to stop killing whales.

These poachers have no right to kill protected whales in an international sanctuary.

Thankfully, Sea Shepherd is taking action!

Amen and thank you, AnimuX for posting this information for all of us shocked and concerned readers. How can we help protect our world?
12:57 AM on 01/02/2011
Write to U.S. Commerce Secretary Locke at: TheSec@doc.gov

Ask Secretary Locke to certify that Iceland is subverting international whale conservation efforts!

Ask him to advise the U.S. Secretary of State and the U.S. President to enact sanctions against Icelandic marine products (under the 1971 Pelly Amendment to the Fisherman's Protective Act and 1979 Packwood-Magnuson Amendment to the Fishery Conservation and Management Act) until the commercial slaughter of whales, especially endangered species, is stopped!
