Saving The Dolphins


Dear Sir or Madam,

I am sure you are aware that still in some parts of the world Dolphins and
Whales are still being hunted for food. As with most Western countries this
act has been outlawed in our waters, and many conservation projects are in
force at present to try and protect these wonderful creatures.

They need your help, there is an annual slaughter of many types of Dolphins
and Whales by the PRO WHALING nations, this alone still disgusts me as I am
sure it disgusts you too.

But look at these links, what is happening in a remote fishing village in
southern JAPAN is truly shocking.

What does this have to do with U/W photography?

Regardless of whether this is considered 'drivel' or not, this is the Conservation and Environment forum.

You know they have to kill them as they eat all the fish in the ocean :guiness:

That's why the Japs cannot catch any fish, nothing to do with overfishing.... ;)

O well.. lets hope the toxins, and mercury start having a effect. :)

And I am disappointed to see a post like yours here. This is the conservation forum, and it is your reply that is inappropriate.

Gotcha. Still, there was no reason to be rude. A suggestion to move it to the appropriate forum would have been more effective.

I know I come to this thread very late but, Okuma, no matter what forum this is in, you seem in great denial as to the massive harm the Japanese and Chinese populations are doing to the Oceans. A good friend said that just because slavery was once part of the world's culture doesn't mean it should not be corrected. The aforesaid populations seem to prefer to remain oblivious to the devastation they are causing not only to the marine environment, but to the entire world who will, eventually, if not currently, pay for their excess. Time to change a little cultural heritage if you ask me.

PS Divers, how about saying something when you are on a liveaboard about all the seafood they are constantly serving you. I refuse to eat it myself.
