First Bryde’s whale auction held after Japan resumes commercial hunts

Bryde's whale

An auction of Bryde’s whale meat has taken place in Japan, the first since the Japanese government decided to withdraw from the International Whaling Commission (the body that regulates whale hunting) several months ago, and ignore the current international ban on commercial hunts.

Around 70 Bryde’s whales have been caught in the sea south of Aichi Prefecture and other waters following Japan’s decision to restarted commercial whaling on July 1.

The meat sold for up to ¥20,000 ($183) per kilogram at an auction that began at 6 am at a market in the city of Sendai.

Auctions selling the meat of smaller-sized minke whales have already been held since Japan restarted whaling.

WDC is fighting to STOP whaling. DONATE and help.
