Notojima Aquarium, Confinement of Whale Sharks, Micro Plastics, Old Dolphins in Japan｜LIB
Whale shark is the largest fish on earth. Japanese aquariums are eager to confine whale sharks. 4 lFacilities in Japan ・ Notojima Aquarium (Ishikawa Prefecture) ・ Kaiyukan (Osaka) ・ Kagoshima Aquarium (Kagoshima Prefecture) ・ Churaumi Aquarium (Okinawa) All are West Japan. Kaiyukan released the bycatched whale shark. For research purposes, I think it has a good attitude.
Did you know that old dolphins are kept in tanks in aquariums all over Japan? Dolphins that can no longer show are quietly confined in a water tank that is difficult to see. Many dolphins behave abnormally. This dolphin hardly moved towards the wall.
As I often see, some customers give instructions to the dolphins. Many dolphins suffer because “dolphins lovers” enjoy the dolphin show. I think there is an “audience responsibility”.
A commentary is attached to the photo. There is also a problem with melamine sponge and micro plastic that clean the aquarium.
