Whalers in Japan return to port with over 200 whales

Japan's factory whaling ship, the "Nisshin Maru" returned to port on November 14th at the end of this year's self-allocated whaling season in the North Pacific.

This is the third year that Japan has carried out commercial whaling in the region since leaving the International Whaling Commission in 2019. As previously, 187 Bryde's whales and 25 sei whales were caught as planned on the eastern side of Hokkaido and off the Sanriku coast.

As well as these species, Japan also hunts minke whales in its coastal waters and offshore, but no further than the line of the 200-mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
