Jiji Press reported that the Institute of Cetacean Research and Kyodo Senpaku Co., both of which conduct research whaling in the Southern Ocean, announced today that they have reached an agreement with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SS) and its representative Paul Watson earlier this month over the society’s obstructive behavior toward Japan’s research whaling fleet. Jiji said the Japanese side will pay a settlement fee to SS and in return SS will refrain from engaging in obstructive behavior permanently. According to Jiji, the two research whaling organizations called on the federal district court in Washington State to execute an indefinite injunction barring SS from carrying out acts of obstruction.
