According to a recent posting on Facebook by Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson, the start to the 2011-2012 Whale Wars is less than 48 hours away.

“Apparently the Nisshin Maru has taken only half it’s fuel with the rest to be loaded tomorrow. Talk in the town is that they will leave tomorrow but certainly within 48 hours. According to reliable reports out of Tokyo there will be armed Japanese Coast Guard officers on the ships. As Sherlock Holmes once said to Dr. Watson, “the game is afoot.” All three Sea Shepherd ships are primed and ready for departure.”

Those reliable reports come to us via The Mainichi Daily News which quoted one coast guard official as saying security will be unprecedented. The move is part of a staggering $28M increase in security to deter the Sea Shepherd from interfering in this year’s hunt. While coast guard officials have accompanied the Japanese whaling fleet previously, there are reports that a dedicated security ship will also take part in the operation.

We’ll know more over the next several days, so stay tuned.
