Chapter Summary

Japan has continued to conduct scientific research whaling ('research whaling') based on Article 8 of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling ('ICRW'); and, particularly after the 1982 Moratorium on Commercial Whaling (as decided upon by the International Whaling Commission ('IWC'), Japan has been actively engaged in research whaling as part of a national policy. This chapter focuses on the possibility of a Japan Coast Guard ship taking steps at sea just prior to, or during or immediately after, acts of obstruction, and not on the situation where a Coast Guard ship, for example, encounters an offending ship a certain period of time after the offending ship has committed an alleged act of obstruction and has left the area. It considers the possible steps which might be taken by Japan on the high seas to tackle the alleged acts of obstruction against Japanese research whaling.
