Why is the town of Taiji in Japan notorious?



  1. 0 Votes

    Taiji, Japan has gained a negative reputation in the international community thanks to its annual dolphin hunts, brought to light with the recent documentary ‘The Cove.’ Furthermore, the mayor of the small island coastal community recently states that, despite the bad press, the dolphin hunts will continue as planned every September 1st. Currently, dolphin meat sells for $10 a pound in the local area, and much of the local economy is generated through the practice.

    As stated above the town of Taiji, Japan is “notorious” for its annual dolphin hunt in which dolphins are herded towards the shore and then killed. This is a tradition for the town and is economically profitable for the local fishermen. Here is the link for a trailer for the documentary, “The Cove.”
