Japan Plans To Resume Commercial Whaling Operations

"Japan says it is going to resume commercial whaling operations next year. This is a practice that has drawn widespread criticism from conservationists Japan will also pull out of an intergovernmental body that regulates the industry and piers Anthony Kyun joins me from Tokyo to talk about why this is happening and why now Anthony morning good morning gave it. So what does the Japanese government saying here to explain this? What you pans? Chief spokesman said today was that this organization that it pulled out of the international commission, which is based in Cambridge England has a sort of double task part of it is to protect whales, but the other part is to protect and promote a sustainable whaling industry in Japan claims. It's no longer doing that. It's completely siding with the conservationists, and therefore there's just no place. There's nothing the pro whaling countries can do now. Japan says it's going to remain an observer in the item. You see it's going to consider the ideal BC's guidelines on how many Wales to catch. Although it won't say exactly how many in general just stick to whaling practices. Also, it says it's not gonna go very far afield anymore. It's going to restrict all its wailing to its own territorial waters and exclusive economic zone. So basically, basically, it's coastal waters. But whatever the Japanese government thinks about the Whaling Commission and its mandate. I mean, isn't there an international moratorium on whaling that is still in effect right now? What does that mean for Japan if they if they start doing this again? Yeah. It's still in effect. It went into effect in the mid nineteen eighty s and after that Japan just kept on whaling and selling whale meat. But what it said he was doing was scientific research, basically that was panned in dismissed by lot of conservationists as a real fig-leaf. You know was basically a hoax, but Japan argues that thanks to this moratorium wheel stocks have now recovered to the point where they can continue. And you know, they they lobbied the idol BBC for many years to allow more wailing, but it just it doesn't work. And now that there are no longer a signatory to the WC. They're not allowed to go to the Antarctic or in the northwest Pacific. They have to fish in their own waters. I mean, this this announcement was just hours ago. But it sounds like there's already been a lot of reaction from around the world. Yes. And as you might expect it's been pretty pretty grim. The condemnation from environmental groups has been pretty stern Greenpeace basically says this move is out of step with the international community, Australia and New Zealand taken a strong stand on New Zealand's, foreign minister said whaling as outdated in it's unnecessary, and they hope Japan, we'll just reconsider and stop this commercial whaling. Of course, they're glad that they're not going to be wailing in the Arctic, and they're not going to be continuing continuing under the guise of commercial whaling, and you know, in twenty ten Australia actually took Japan before the international court of Justice. And that was NPR's. Anthony Kyun sounds like we lost him there. Anthony talking to us about a decision by the Japanese government today to resume commercial whaling operations next year. This is a practice that of course, has drawn a lot of criticism. And a lot of countries already reacting this morning. We'll be following the story again Japan picking up whaling operations again next year.
