Press Release April 20, 2011
Fisheries Agency
1st Committee on the State of Japan’s Whale Research Program

The Fisheries Agency’s 1st Committee on the State of Japan’s Whale Research Program will sit on Friday, April 22, 2011.

1. Summary
Japan is now conducting whale research to gather scientific evidence regarding the whale stocks necessary for the resumption of commercial whaling. However, in recent years, JARPA, Japan’s “Whale Research Program under Special Permit in the Antarctic”, has not proceeded as planned due to obstruction by anti-whaling groups. Taking this into consideration, the committee will hear a wide range of opinions regarding the future of the research program.
