Whale ecology means enrichment of the oceans and carbon dioxide reduction


Studies have found that whales increase the population of plankton which bolsters the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. If Japan is justifying their illegal whale slaughter under the smoke-screen of "scientific research", then their junk science must be exposed to enforce their removal. Clearly, it is erroneous to claim, as the three whaling countries tout, that whales compete with their commercial fisheries. Rather, they enhance them.

Lies, Damn Lies and 'Japanese Scientific Whaling'

Japanese whalers and fishing corporations have made Japan the pariah of the world's oceans. The Japanese lie of scientific whaling has become a cliched euphemism. Now the science has been officially confirmed as a fraud, as if we didn't already know.

An international team of Oregon State University scientists, documentary filmmakers and environmental advocates has uncovered an apparent illegal trade in whalemeat, linking whales killed in Japan's controversial scientific whaling program to sushi restaurants in Seoul, South Korea, and Los Angeles, California.
Is this Japan's whale meat export led recovery?

Scientific research has revealed that whaling is not a ‘harvest of a sustainable resource.’


Whaling is threatening newly-discovered deep-sea creatures with extinction, according to research by biological oceanographer Craig Smith. He is sounding the alarm that whaling continues to be a threat to these ecosystems. 'We must recognise that the oceans consist of a group of tightly connected ecosystems – over-fishing or pollution in surface waters is bound to cause problems hundreds of metres below.'

The Cove exposes Japan's obscene dolphin massacre.


But Taiji, located 150 kilometres south of Osaka on the Pacific Ocean, has a town with a terrible secret. 23,000 dolphins and porpoises are killed annually in an inlet and sold to unsuspecting Japanese consumers as toxin-free Antarctic whales.
