Toxic Catch: Japan’s unsustainable and irresponsible whale, dolphin and porpoise hunts

905

The London-based Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) has today released a Japanese language version of its report Toxic Catch: Japan’s unsustainable and irresponsible whale, dolphin and porpoise hunts.

 

The report is an analysis by EIA of the unsustainable hunts of whales, dolphins and porpoises in Japan’s coastal waters, which are on track to wipe out key species while also threatening human health with toxic meat products contaminated with mercury and other pollutants.

 

The report is available to download at http://www.eia-international.org/?p=7936

 

EIA believes that as well as by applying external pressure on the Government of Japan to end the coastal whaling which threatens cetacean populations and human health, providing hard information to Japanese activists will help them press for change from within.
