    UN ICJ: Japan Whale Hunt Not Science

    Top UN court orders Japan to end Antarctic whale hunt

    The United Nations' top court on Monday ordered Japan to end its annual Antarctic whale hunt, saying in a landmark ruling that the programme was a commercial activity disguised as science.
    And apparently Japan will back down.

    "As a state that respects the rule of law… and as a responsible member of the global community, Japan will abide by the decision of the court," chief negotiator Koji Tsuruoka told reporters outside the ICJ.

    Id.
    The ruling follows years of litigation by Australia brought before the highest court of the UN, the International Court of Justice which has diversity jurisdiction over willing parties. Third party harassment of whaling fleets have also been highlighted by the media and to some extent successful in curtailing the hunt.

    The primary targeted minke whale is not an endangered species, and the hunts typically haul in less than 1% of the population per year.

    And it took them 50 years to realize this...

    This makes me wonder what all the fuss is over. If it's not endangered, and catches only bring in an easily replaceable number of the species, aren't there bigger issues than this out there?

    About time.

    Now to end the barbarous slaughter of dolphins.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    The population numbers are suspect. Perhaps half of the population has been wiped out in the NW Pacific & NE Atlantic. Do not confuse "stable" population with safe from rapid extinction. Stable population doesn't mean that it is not declining. It hasn't fallen to the numbers that represent a extreme threat to the species future YET.

    As this the smallest of the great whales it has benefited from the decimation and slaughter of the larger whales. The larger whales are the most sought after, as extinction looms for those species more pressure will fall on remaining species. This is already known with the minke whale. In addition with the large whale species becoming rare the food supply that these same whales eat has increased giving a temporary boom to resources to maintain a declining but healthy population (globally) of Minkes.

    There is no management or true stewardship by humans on wildlife at sea. It is extremely difficult to get a species placed on the endangered list. Profits of course sway the direction of politics.

    History shows how fast stable or a large populations of animal can go down to nearly zero. In America the best known example is the Bison. Factory hunting from the rail to destroy incredible numbers of these animals. The 21st century animal factory is a lot more efficient then the rails in 1895.

    The number of animals and plants going down is incredible. Plants are even more in peril but of little concern compared to animals such as whales. This is a shame because some very rare incredible plants have vanished or are close.
    One such plant would be the Venus Fly Trap (Dionaea muscipula) the bug eater from 11 counties in SE NC near Wilmington. Many think this novelty plant a Amazon or African roots. At one point this plant grew from Eastern Georgia to the VA border on the coastal plain always a small area. Now its reduced to ever shrinking isolated pockets. Humans are the blame for over collecting but development & agriculture are the real cuplrits. Its home is the $$ plush Atlantic coastal strands where golf courses, country clubs, McDonalds, resorts & mega subdivisions always will over rule protection of the ecosystem. It will never see the Endangered species list, but is way past being qualified for a listing now.

    Time for the world to stand vigorously against whale harvesting from countries such as Japan.

    Some whales are endangered; some are not. Minke, gray, and humpback might be three of the few species that aren't. The hunt also captured a numbered of fin whales, which are endangered. I also imagine if the restrictions on minke whales were lifted, then they would rapidly be hunted to extinction.

    Edit: 17 of the 90 cetacean species are known to be safe from extinction.
