Japanese Kill Less Whales Due to Activists

The Japanese whaling fleet has returned to port, and has only killed about 60 percent of what they set out to kill.

The mother ship of Japan's whaling fleet has returned to port with a catch of 551 - just about 60 per cent of its target.

The Nisshin Maru docked in Tokyo on Monday, having caught all minke whales and no fin whales.

It had hoped to kill 900 overall, including 50 humpback whales.

The mission had faced a series of violent protests and harassment by animal rights activists in the Antarctic Ocean.

Ah what the Japanese have to put up with for their phony research.
