How Japan managed to pull it off for some many decades. It is a blatant bare faced lie that they kill whales for "research".
Must learn from them.
Did they bribe the international governing body for past few decades?
Well finally good sense prevailed.
But by this time almost all the whales have been massacred for eating. Very few left.
Whale meat is very expensive in Japan.
Someone was boasting to me about how he was entertained in BKK by big timer who ordered whale meat in a Japanese restaurant; and the whole restaurant's customers went like - wow! so expensive - must be VIP guest.
World court rules Japan's whaling not for scientific ends, revokes permits
