Japan to resume ‘research’ whaling in Antarctic

Japan on Friday decided to resume whaling in the Antarctic Ocean by the end of March after a hiatus since last year, a move likely to prompt international outrage. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) last year ruled that Japan’s decades-old whale hunt in the Antarctic should stop, prompting Tokyo to cancel the bulk of its whaling in the 2014-2015 season. Meanwhile, the Japanese Fisheries Agency has now notified the International Whaling Commission (IWC) that it will resume whaling in the 2015-2016 season under a revised plan.
