1/4/2006: Japan vs Greenpeace



Yet another whale-related IotD? It IS. In this shot, Greenpeace is disrupting a Japanese whaling ship and the ship is responding in kind. Fascinating.



Jordon  Wednesday Jan 4 01:23 PM

Greenpeace should retaliate with waterbaloons and supersoaker squirt guns. That'll teach em.



glatt  Wednesday Jan 4 02:55 PM

Cool shot. Greenpeace got what it was after here - a striking image that people will stop to look at.

I don't like the Japanese whalers. I had forgotten about them, but this image reminds me.



Pancake Man  Wednesday Jan 4 03:27 PM

Reminding me more and more of MXC....



Wormfood  Wednesday Jan 4 03:51 PM

I bet those whales are caught for scientific purposes...They didn't learn anything from last years catch.
But hey,Greenpeace learned to screen off the driver.



fargon  Wednesday Jan 4 04:15 PM

At least the Japanise eat the whales, Unlike some people that kill to have a head on thier wall



glatt  Wednesday Jan 4 04:21 PM

The Japanese also eat the entire fin from the sharks they kill. Dump the rest of the writhing creature overboard.

He's right, the driver has plexiglass on 3 sides.



seakdivers  Wednesday Jan 4 07:42 PM

I've got a great shot of me mooning the Greenpeace boat "Rainbow Warrior" when it visited here.

I know, I need to get a life.

You are thinking of the Chinese, Japanese donít generally eat shark or shark fin soup, unless they visit a Chinese restaurant!

The Japanese do however kill thousands of dolphins every year.

Yea and we probably consume more tuna in our sushi shops and grocery stores nationwide then anywhere else in the world. Not to mention for the last 50 or so years we put a heck of a lot of Mr. Charlie Tuna into cans for human and feline consumption as well as various forms of other animal feeds.

I think we should all stop worrying so much about countries like Japan and Norway or Greenland and their whaling fleets, ever wonder when you order Chilean Sea Bass at that favorite place if their fish was caught legally or by poachers exceeding any limits? Practice what you preach and don't postulate.

Some day it will be just like Solent Green, so many humans to dispose of, perhaps we will just consume the biproducts...

NOPE, Japan consumes about 50 percent of the worlds tuna catch every year.

Quote:
Of the total worldwide catch of 1.2 million tons of tuna, Japanese consume 600,000 tons: 500,000 tons as sashimi and the remaining 100,000 tons in cans. In Japan, 250,000 tons of tuna are imported. In short, Japan is the largest market for tuna in the world.

Unless you live in one of those counties, right?

By the way I've eaten whale, not that good. I've eaten it as sashimi and as whale bacon. The sashimi was god awful, and the whale bacon was only a little better.

Yeah, I realized my mistake a few seconds after I posted my post. So I immediately deleted my post (less than a minute after I made it, and before anyone had responded to it.) Of course, around here, that isn't fast enough to keep someone from pointing out your stupidity.

No, you need to get a *scanner*.


seakdivers  Thursday Jan 5 06:30 PM

Nope. It's digital.

And I'm not sharing my glowing white butt with the whole world! (just the people on the Greenpeace boat)



barefoot serpent  Thursday Jan 5 07:00 PM

*ahem* which KetchiCAN are you?



seakdivers  Thursday Jan 5 07:12 PM

Hey - somebody stole my idea!! I'm none of those cans...... I live in Sitka.

Plus my can was solo.
