The object at the entrance of Taiji Town is a mother and child humpback whale.
Humpback whale meat was sold at the roadside station in Taiji Town. Humpback whales have large pectoral and tail fins and have an elegant shape. They may also approach humans themselves.
Humpback whales are not the target species for Japanese whaling. Therefore, it is believed that they were killed or killed by bycatch. Bycatch of humpback whales in Japan in 2019 is eight. Five of them have been killed and three have been released.
The other day, the day when humpback whales were bycatch in the fixed net of Taiji Town, minke whales were bycatch in the neighboring Kushimoto Town. The next day, the body was sold at the supermarket.
