Japan does not need to kill any whales for ‘scientific research’ this year according to scientists from the majority of countries represented at the recent meeting of the International Whaling Commission’s (IWC) Scientific Committee.

Japan plans to resume Antarctic whaling later this year after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled in March last year that its Southern Ocean whaling programme JARPA-II was not for scientific purposes and was therefore illegal.
