Perspective from Japan on whaling and whale meat, a spot of gourmet news, and monthly updates of whale meat stockpile statistics



IWC 2006: A voice from St Kitts & Nevis

The western media is quick to regurgitate anti-whaling NGO assertions that poor developing nations are led by corrupt officials who are willing to sell their countries' soul in exchange for a vote at the IWC. Yet the western media has never displayed any noticable degree of effort to inform the rest of the world about what people in these so-called "bribed" nations actually think.

St Kitts & Nevis' SUN news site has a letter to the editor regarding whaling:

There continues to be a lot of discussion on the whaling issue. Now, St. Kitts is in the spotlight because it will be hosting a big whaling conference this year.

I have listened to many knowledgeable people speak on the subject and, I must say, I think the countries of the region have every right to try and protect the few resources they have working for them and one of these is what’s available in the sea.

Someone mentioned the number of fish a whale can eat in a day and when I think what too many whales in the area can do, I get frightened for the people of the region.

True, I am no expert on the matter but, I am looking at this thing in a common sense way and I am not at all sure the people who are pro-whaling, in this situation, are wrong.

"Someone mentioned the number of fish a whale can eat in a day and when I think what too many whales in the area can do, I get frightened for the people of the region"

What about the plankton? What happens when the whales eat all the plankton?
Doomsday, is what.

We gotta get the whales before they get us.
