What kind of “research” is Japan doing on the whales?

    In 1987 Japan launched their research program on whales, under the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling.  It began as a study of Southern ocean Minke whales, with the goal of understanding how environmental changes effect whales, and the part whales play in the eco system.  The program monitors whale populations through acoustic surveys and photographic surveys.  They also capture a limited number of individual whales on which to perform genetic and biological tests.
