Three of the five small whaling boats I took when I happened to be moored while entering the road next to the Momonoura fishing port in Miyagi prefecture. ・ Koei Maru (No.8) ・ Daikatsu Maru (No.3) ・ Junyumaru (No.51)
No whales were found in this year’s small whaling, and they have already decided to stop whaling. Therefore, the 7th Katsumaru is back at the Taiji fishing port.
You can see the harpoon cannon that kills the whales. Free-living whales are suddenly killed one day. Anti-whale protectors need to awaken to the need to curb their desire for food and money and protect their irreplaceable, Earth-mate whales.
Those are the pens of Dolphin Base. The depth is only about 4m. Four dolphins have died in the 2018 typhoon. For the dolphin industry, dolphins are resources and commodities. If die, they can catch dolphins again by dolphin hunting. Dolphins have their own family, life, and emotions.
After Japan Dolphins Day 2020 @ Taiji on August 30, 2020, we had a discussion with the right-wing people who came to protest us.
People who used to protest Sea Shepherd (https://youtu.be/D0_phHn2aQM). This is a video of a discussion between those who insist on dolphin hunting protection and us activists who are trying to protect dolphins.
