JACRE is an organization for selling dolphins from Taiji Dolphin Hunting. The number of member institutions, which was a few in 2016, has increased dramatically to 38.
Due to WAZA’s decision to dislike the unethical way of capturing dolphins, JAZA abandoned it from dolphins. JACRE is an organization created by an aquarium that has resisted the decision.

Aquariums that has left JAZA and joined JACRE is a facility where you want to buy dolphins from dolphins hunting even if you kill them.
Aquariums that did not leave JAZA and joined JACRE are thought to be the target of breeding dolphins. They cannot buy dolphins captured in Taiji, but once the dolphins have bred, they can buy them. Or maybe they started hunting dolphins in Ito City, Shizuoka Prefecture. Dolphin hunting, which does not kill dolphins, is a loophole for WAZA decisions. The wisdom of fisheries agencies, aquariums and animal industry officials is amazing.
Aquariums is such an organization. You can save dolphins by not dropping money into the aquarium.
