    According to the whaling museum in Taiji, Japan, this has been going on since the 1600s. The industry has declined since then, but Japan’s annual quota is still around 20,000.

    Dolphin slaughter, especially the slaughter of Bottlenose dolphins, which is the target species, has been going on for centuries.  Dolphin is a staple food source in the Japanese diet.  It’s also said that the act of dolphin slaughter and the consumption of dolphins has been linked to the fact that it’s a way of combating mercury poisoning that is particularly hard on fetuses, infants and young children.
