South Korea Will Not Allow Research Whaling

Despite earlier claims to the contrary, South Korea will not hunt whales for scientific research.

Although the announcement has not yet been made formally, an unidentified official from the presidential Blue House said the president and prime minister made the determination at a meeting Tuesday.

The prime minister’s office acknowledged that they were aware and mindful of the rampant criticism that resulted from their announcement earlier this month that South Korea would allow research whaling. Environmentalists and non-whaling nations protested the announcement, and critics suspected the plan was a cover for commercial whaling.

Before the international moratorium against commercial whaling was introduced in 1986, South Korea had a long history of whaling. Whaling for the purposes of scientific research is the ban’s sole exception.
