El ministro de medioambiente australiano Peter Garret comentó durante la última reunión de la International Whaling Comission que Japón había matado, (con la excusa de que están llevando a cabo una investigación científica) más de 13000 ballenas desde la moratoria de 1986.

Según el grupo ecologista Humane Society International, durante la temporada 2008/2009 barcos japoneses cazaron 679 ballenas, 304 de éstas eran hembras y 192 estaban embarazadas.

The HSI said data from Japan’s 2008/2009 hunt showed of 679 whales it reported killing, 304 were female. The data showed 192 of the whales were pregnant. Four were lactating.

Australian Environment Minister Peter Garrett, who is at the IWC meeting, said Japan had killed more than 13,000 whales in the name of research since a moratorium on commercial whaling was imposed in 1986.
