Japan cuts short whale hunt

Japan whale hunting season in the Antarctic was cut short after its main whaling ship was crippled by a fire two weeks ago.  "We have been research whaling for 20 years, but this is the first time we have had to cut the expedition short"… "It is very unfortunate," said Takahide Naruko, Fisheries Agency official.

On the other hand, Greenpeace message to the Japanese crew was, “… this must be the last time your government sends you to the Southern Ocean to hunt whales and threaten the Antarctic environment. For the sake of the environment, the whales and your crew -- never again!"

The Japanese fleet caught 505 minke whales and 3 fin whales, compared with a planned catch of 850 minke and 10 fin whales.
