Sea Shepherd ROCKS! More whales bring the deep sea nutrients to the surface to feed little fish, creating more bigger fish - so more for fishermen. Whales are an integral part of a healthy balanced prolific sea. And surely Japan needs to look to its planners for real 'sabotage' - how clever is it to build your nuclear power stations in an earthquake prone area??

Hooray for the Sea Shepherd and it's brave crew. The United States and Australia should be condemning Japan for violating international laws instead of condemning the actions of Sea Shepherd.

This news made my day! The volunteers of the Sea Shepherd organization are my heroes. They are doing extremely important work to protect cetaceans. Regardless of Japanese P.R., there are large stocks of frozen whale meat as the Japanese people are no longer interested in eating it as they have gotten the message that the meat is contaminated with PCB's and mercury. Keep up the great work, Sea Shepherd!

Japan needs to invite itself into the 21st century and stop this terrible slaughter. Thank goodness for Sea Shepherd!

My hearty congratulations to the crew's of the Sea shepherd ships on their recent battles in protecting the whales against the murderous actions of the Japanese whalers.When the Tsunami hit japan a few years ago the world came their aid and donated large sums of money to help their citizens who were devastated by the tragedy.Little did they know that millions of the money donated to help the people would be given instead to Japans illegal whaling fleet which has relations with the yakuza gangsters.The government of Japan is corrupt like the whalers and they ought to be roundly condemned by the civilized nation's of the world.To say that whaling is a tradition is not true there was very little whaling in Japan before the second world war and was brought about by general MacArthur as an aid to feed a starving population.They are the pits.

This is wonderful news. Hearty congratulations to everyone within the Sea Shepherd organisation and particularly those extremely courageous men and women who brave the despicable violence of the 'YELLOW PERIL' in the southern ocean.
May the ships and crews of "Sea Shepherd" have the strength and financial support to continue with this battle against the murdering Japanese until such time as the Japanese whaling fleet rots away.
