Southern Ocean

I believe the Yushin Maru #2 is of seeking propeller repairs in your port as a result of ice damage. The city of Fremantle would not support this vessel to enter our fishing boat harbour to seek repairs to continue on illegal activity. I, as Mayor of the city of Fremantle, urge you to so not allow this vessel to be repaired in your port, and as a result the Yushin Maru #2 will not be able to allow the illegal whaling. Best regards, Peter Tagliaferri Mayor of city of Fremantle what does that mean? The Yushin Maru #2 has killed a single whale since December 20, and as a result of the decision in Surabaya they will not return even once in the Southern Ocean. This effectively reduces the killing potential of the Japanese whaling fleet by one-third as the Yushin Maru are now #1 and the Yushin Maru #3 the only remaining Harpoon ships. “The decision to expel the Yushin Maru #2 from Surabaya saves the lives many great whales”, said Captain Paul Watson.

The loss of the harpoon vessel associated with sea shepherds of successful prevention of Whaling between December 20 and January 7 will have a significant impact on the rate of killing. And if the Sea Shepherd ship Steve Irwin returns to the fleet for another one and a half months to hinder, the impact will be even greater. The goal of Sea Shepherd is to save it as many whales as possible and disposed of the whaling industry of as many losses as possible. So far, the campaign has exceeded expectations. It is also very humiliating for Japan that one of their ships almost got kicked out of an Indonesian port after they are banned for years from Australian and New Zealand ports. It is still not sure where the Yushin Maru going #2 now finding a way for repairs but we are in the eye keep and make everything to delay their return to Antarctic waters as long as how it goes.
