So, the Japanese look to be getting more support at the IWC. On the whole it seems NZ is opposed to this, because they don't want to see any hunting of whales. Is it a falt ban we prefer or, should conditions actually reach the right levels, would limited hunting be acceptable? The IWC was originally set up to monitor exactly that.
What can NZ do that could actually make any difference in all this? The market for whale is nearly non-existant but it continues, so how can a small group like us tip the balance?
