◎Anonymous Message To The Japanese Governmenthttp://youtu.be/PiwlA5-yQ1g

I read a comment of a pro-whaling person. "Those people who are against whaling are mostly likely saying that whales must become endangered. By taking in the whales, we are studying the anatomy , niche, and food of the different species of whales. Those people who wants to kill whales, wants to study the whales in order to avoid their endangered status. If whales were to become endangered, then the whalers cannot obtain their steady supply of whale meat. And therefore, if they were to become more endangered, those against whaling has now got more to argue about".  This is a very twisted thinking.

Those people who doesn't want the whales to become endangered want to expose the fact that whaling is very bad. But even if it's not endangered, they are against whaling. Since the whale products are considered a "supply", the people against whaling want to promote the wellness of the whales. Just because whales are not endangered or overpopulated doesn't mean that humans can do what we want regarding whaling. We need to fix the ecosystem in which we have destroyed such as invasive species. The most species that we need to reduce are humans. We need to control the population and the birth of human beings before we even deal with nature's, what we claim, "overpopulation". 

We do not need to kill many whales just for studying. If humans did not eat whale, then whale study is not needed. We should keep nature by itself without us interfering with it's natural course and think more about the wellness and the environmental factors of the  ocean. If some reason, we need to study whales, we have the technology to attach cameras and sensors onto the body, allowing us to observe their behavior. I have seen the process in which this is preformed without hurting the whale. If a marine scientist were to desire the dissection of a whale to study it's anatomy, we should confined this study into one area in the world where they preform these dissections instead of numerous sites.

The International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling (ICRW) declares that the remains of whales used for studying is not to be wasted in any means. The Japanese follow this rule by eating the whale remains. Since the operation of this study takes much money, they cover the fee by selling whale meat. But it seems like they're studying the whale in order to eat the meat. (-_-")

Is this method of researching whales necessary? If studies are to be preformed, it would be reasonable to study in America or along the coast of Australia. If whaling were to be banned, The International Whaling Commission (IWC) will loose their business.

Below are the population estimates of some whale species provided by the IWC at present. 
Name Distribution Population
Minke whales Southern Hemisphere...................................761,000
 North West Pacific and Okhotsk Sea....................................25,000
 North Atlantic (excluding Canadian East Coast)……………149,000
Bowhead whales Bering-Chukchi- Beaufort Seas stock‥....8,000
Gray whales Eastern North Pacific.......................................26,300
Humpback whales Western North Atlantic............................11,570
Blue whales Southern Hemisphere..............................400 - 1,400
Fin whales North Atlantic...................................................47,300


How many whales have been killed since the moratorium came into effect?
Over 30,000 whales have been killed since the moratorium came into effect. 
- Japan has killed more than 17,000 whales : 5519 "under objection" until 1987/88 when it dropped its objection, 8659* in its JARPA scientific permit hunt and 3281* in its JARPN scientific permit hunt.
- Norway has killed nearly 10,000 whales since 1985/86 : 9773* mostly under objection, but also a few under scientific permit
- Iceland has killed 821, since 1985/1986 of which more than half have been since it resumed whaling in 2003 also under scientific permit and objection

*provisional figures. We do not currently have official IWC figures for the 2009/2010 hunts as yet and the data for the past year are based on press reports. 





日本の捕鯨賛成派のコメントを読んだ。「海外の捕鯨反対派は、鯨が絶滅種でないと困るんです。絶滅種でないと文句が言えないからです。調査捕鯨は鯨が絶滅しないように種類や餌の量など調べるために調査しています。だから捕鯨賛成派は鯨が絶滅種では困る、捕鯨反対派は鯨が絶滅種でないと困るんですね」 ヒネくれている。

捕鯨反対派は捕鯨を辞めさせたいがために絶滅種であることを盾にしているかもしれない。しかし絶滅種でなくても反対するだろう。なぜなら彼等は鯨を資源=食糧としているが、反対派にとってクジラは同じ地球に住む家族であり、この美しい生物を脅かすことなく平和に暮らさせてやりたいと思うからだ。数が増え過ぎたから、絶滅種ではないからと殺しても良いなどと自然界にはそんな約束事はない。しかし人間が別の場所から持ち込んだ動物や植物が生態系をや自然を壊すことがある。そしてこの世の中で1番増えすぎて数を減らさなければならないのは他でもない人間がけなのだ。今から考えて直ぐにコントロールを始めるべきなのは人間の出生に制限にあると思う。
調査捕鯨は必要ない。人間が鯨を食べなければ。ただただ自然のままにしておき、人間は海の生物が心地良く住めるように環境問題に取り組んだ方がいい。また調査を必要とするなら発信機や小型カメラを一定期間鯨に取り付ければいい。今のテクノロジーなら可能だろうし、もう始めているのも見たことがある。それでもダメなら一ヶ国が代表して行えばいい。
(ICRW)は調査捕鯨で捕獲した鯨は調査後有効に使用すること、という。日本はICRWの条約を守るために鯨を食べている。調査は莫大な資金がかかるためクジラの肉は売り調査費用に当てるのがというが、食べることを前提に調査捕鯨を行っていると言えないか。

調査捕鯨は必ずしも必要なのだろうか。必要ならばアメリカやオーストラリアに委ねるべきだと思う。
そして、捕鯨が無くなると1番困るのが(IWC)なのではないか。
