“I Am Furious,” Said the Whaling Fleet’s Leader Shigetoshi Nishiwaki. :)

The Steve Irwin battles the Nisshin Maru

The Japanese whaling catch this year is the lowest it has been in a long time, and the whalers place the blame of the low catch firmly on Sea Shepherd.

According to the AFP:

The fleet’s catch of 507 whales was down sharply on last year’s cull of 680 and below the target of about 850, said Japan’s Fisheries Agency, which blamed a total of 31 days of harassment by the Sea Shepherd group

“I am furious,” said the whaling fleet’s leader Shigetoshi Nishiwaki. Also of note in the article, is Nishiwaki’s comments on how irresponsible we were to let him ram and slice our Sea Shepherd ship in half so it would sink.

He charged that the activists “say they want to protect the ocean, but they don’t care about leaking oil or leaving pieces of a broken ship behind”, a reference to the group’s sunken powerboat the Ady Gil.

Although Sea Shepherd had removed all the fuel from the Ady Gil before it sank, Nishiwaki’s comments are still reported to be hilarious.

    Another brilliant comment from the above article: “The lack of samples could affect the accuracy of our research.”

    Is there anything more tragic in this world than inaccurate research results due to a lack of dead whales?

    Research my ass.

    Good! I wish we could do more to their stupid whaling fleets.. What they are doing is illegal and morally unacceptable. I wish we could get the word out and get more funding for the Sea Sheperds!

    Good! What their doing is illegal and morally unacceptable. These mammals belong in the sea not to be killed for profit.

    Many praises to Paul Watson and the Sea Shepard Crew for their amazing drive and resolve.
    I’m proud to support the Sea Shepard Shepard
    In 2012 there is no reason to kill whales for scientific research
