Media Release Nov 19th 2007 from http://www.whalesrevenge.com
The Japanese Whaling fleet left the port of Shimonoseki in Japan on Sunday the 18th [Nov. 2007] for the Antarctic to kill over 1000 whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary under the guise of ‘scientific’ whaling. This kill includes 50 endangered fin whales, 50 endangered humpback whales and 935 minke whales. This is the biggest hunt since the moratorium on commercial whaling came into force more than 20 years ago and for the first time in almost three decades the Japanese want to include the humpbacks on their menu.
