Bycatch: 'Accidental' whale kills

Multimedia | May 11, 2005

This graph demonstrates the difference between the number of whales killed accidentally by a selection of national fishing fleets around the world, versus the number killed by two nations which have a commercial market for whale meat, Korea and Japan. Of the total number of whales entangled in nets reported worldwide to the International Whaling Commission in 2004, 87% of them were reported by Korea and Japan.
