Whale Wars: De Jacht op Dwergvinvissen is Weer Geopend en Walvisjacht Japan Gestart

Geschreven op 20-5-2008 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Dieren Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

greenpeace-scandal-whaling.bmp3 december 2015: Slecht nieuws. Japan gaat weer op walvissen jagen in de wateren rond Antarctica. Eind maart 2016 mogen de walvisvaarders uitvaren om 300 dwergvinvissen te vangen.

Vorig jaar maart bepaalde het Internationaal Gerechtshof van de Verenigde Naties dat de walvisvaart rond Antarctica onwettig is en moet stoppen. Maar Japan heeft na de uitspraak van de rechter een nieuw plan opgesteld voor de walvisjacht in het Zuidpoolgebied, waarin is vastgelegd dat men op minder dwergvinvissen gaat jagen en dan mag het weer.

Gelukkig kan er nog veel gebeuren tussen nu en eind maart volgend jaar. Wie weet komt er een nieuwe rechtszaak en wordt het jagen op dwergvinvissen gewoon helemaal verboden. Niet allen voor Japan, maar voor alle landen in de wereld.

20 mei 2008: IJsland heeft weer toestemming gegeven om 40 dwergvinvissen te vangen voor consumptie. Het walvisvlees is bedoeld voor IJslanders zelf en niet voor de export. In de wateren rond IJsland leven zo’n 50.000 dwergvinvissen. Sinds 2006 is de jacht weer toegestaan, na een verbod dat 20 jaar duurde. Organisaties als Greenpeace en Sea Shepherd zijn woedend. En ik ben dat ook. Kijkt u maar even naar het schokkende filmpje. Weet u gelijk hoe het er aan toe gaat in de walvisjacht.

Wellicht kan de onthulling door Greenpeace van allerlei schandalen rond de walvisjacht in Japan nog een positieve bijdrage leveren. Een wereldwijd verbod op de walvisjacht lijkt mij het beste.

    Afschuwelijk! Dat dit soort barbaars gedrag nog steeds getolereerd wordt! Een wereldwijd verbod lijkt mij inderdaad een heel goed plan. Voldoende alternatieven voor het eten van walvisvlees.

    Whale Wars Begin As Sea Shepherd Gojira Discover Japanese Whaling Fleet

    Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s fleet has found the illegal Japanese whaling vessels on the last day of the calendar year. In the vastness of the Southern Ocean, Sea Shepherd’s ships have now found the Japanese fleet before they even began killing whales. This is a momentous victory for the whales and precisely how Sea Shepherd’s President and Founder Captain Paul Watson had hoped to ring in the New Year.

    At around 0900 hours (Australian Eastern Standard Time), Sea Shepherd’s ship the Bob Barker found a harpoon vessel on the edge of the ice at 148 degrees west. The unidentified Japanese vessel attempted to move south to draw the Bob Barker away from the Nisshin Maru.

    At 1500 Hours AEST, some 60 miles to the North, Sea Shepherd’s flagship vessel the Steve Irwin found the Japanese harpoon vessel Yushin Maru #2 sitting in the ice. The Gojira and Sea Shepherd’s helicopter the Nancy Burnet, continue to search for the Nisshin Maru, Japan’s floating abattoir. Source: Ecorazzi and Sea Shepherd

    Dancing with Death Machines at the Bottom of the World: Operation No Compromise

    “What an awesome way to begin the New Year,” said captain of the Gojira Locky MacLean of Canada. “Our three vessels dancing dangerously through the ice packs locked in confrontation with the three harpoon ships of the Japanese whaling fleet. It was both deadly and beautiful. Deadly because of the ice and the hostility of the whalers and beautiful because of the ice, and the fact that these three killer ships are not killing whales while clashing with us.”

    The three Japanese harpoon vessels the Yushin Maru, Yushin Maru #2, and the Yushin Maru #3 attempted to block Sea Shepherd’s vessels including the Steve Irwin, Bob Barker, and Gojira from the pursuit of the Nisshin Maru factory ship.

    The entire Japanese whaling fleet is on the run, and when they are running they are not killing whales. Sea Shepherd’s ships are chasing the slower factory ship the Nisshin Maru, while the faster Japanese harpoon vessels are chasing after Sea Shepherd’s fleet. Despite their speed, the harpoon vessels are not faster than the Gojira, and the Gojira, with aerial surveillance assistance from Sea Shepherd’s helicopter the Nancy Burnet, is hot on the tracks of that floating abattoir the Nisshin Maru.

    “We’ve got them before they were able to kill a single whale. They are not whaling today and our challenge now is to make sure they don’t kill any whales in the coming days,” said Sea Shepherd campaign leader Captain Paul Watson. Source: Sea Shepherd

    Whale Wars: Activists Clash with Whale Hunting Boat

    Australia was secretly prepared to cut a deal with Japan dealing on whale hunts

    Australia was secretly prepared to cut a deal with Japan to accept a continued whale hunt even though it publicly moved to haul Tokyo before an international court over its ”scientific” whaling program.

    US diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks reveal that Australia was willing to compromise with Japan as late as last February but that any deal must result in a much lower level of whaling and exclude the hunt from waters near Antarctica.

    A compromise under which Japan would kill 5000 fewer whales over 10 years – provided larger varieties such as humpback and fin whales were not taken and loopholes to allow so-called scientific whaling were closed – was discussed.

    Wikileaks Reveals Sea Shepherd is a Serious Concern to Japan’s Illegal Whaling Operations

    Wikileaks has revealed that the Japanese government views Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as a very serious threat to their illegal whaling activities. In a classified U.S. Department of State document released by Wikileaks to the El Pais newspaper in Spain, the Japanese Deputy General Director for the Japanese Fisheries Agency Mr. Yamashita, pointed out that “the harassment of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society had kept the Japanese whaling fleet from reaching its quotas these last few years.”

    There it is! For all the critics who have been saying the anti-whaling campaigns have not been effective, Sea Shepherd holds the same position as the Japanese Fisheries Agency that the campaigns have been very effective, so effective in fact that Sea Shepherd has been discussed in high-level talks by Japanese government representatives with the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    Chasing Giants: Whaling

    The quest to end whaling is at the heart of the international environmental movement. In recent years, the efforts of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society against Japanese “scientific” whaling in the Antarctic have shown that this issue is still very much alive. Inspired by this conflict, two Stanford undergraduates traveled to Norway, a country that resumed commercial whaling after a brief hiatus in the 1980s. Arriving in Sandefjord, Norway with only a camera and two registration cards for the “3rd International Symposium on Whaling and History,” they endeavored to open a dialogue with an ostracized whaling community that has grown bitter to critics as a result of the “whale wars.” During their two months in Norway, they interviewed the heads of Greenpeace Norway, the Norwegian Fisheries Ministry, and the Norwegian Whalers Union, among others. Gradually, their focus evolved from a more scientific point of view (“Is Norwegian whaling sustainable?”), to a deeply philosophical query (“What is really driving Norway to continue the hunt?”). In doing so, the filmmakers found that all parties—whalers and non-whalers alike—claim to champion the tenets of environmentalism. Indeed, they discovered a world where sustainability, environmentalism, and conservation do not mean the same thing, and where those terms are not as purely scientific as they are intensely political.
