Japan urged to abandon outdated whaling policy

Publication Date: 
Fri, 09/30/2011

Following Japanese media reports today that whaling will continue with around US$27 million in additional government security budget to protect the fleet, Patrick Ramage, Director of IFAW’s Global Whale Programme, said: “I'd bet this is whaling's last gasp. The industry is out of gas and crashing. This move is more about pride than profit, more about politics and prerogatives of the Japanese Fisheries Agency than it is about public support.”

U.S. President Barack Obama today announced diplomatic measures to be taken by the United States against Iceland in condemnation of its whaling activities.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare welcomed the move and urged the U.S. government to maintain its strong stance against Icelandic whaling. As the end of the country’s whaling season approaches, no endangered fin whales have been killed this year following earlier US diplomatic moves on the issue.
