Japan officially withdraws from the International Whaling Commission to resume commercial hunting, sparking fears other countries will follow

日本正式退出国际捕鲸委员会恢复商业捕鲸,外界担忧其他国家将效仿

Japan has officially left the International Whaling Commission and is preparing to resume commercial hunting for the first time in 30 years.

日本已正式退出国际捕鲸委员会,30年来首次准备恢复商业捕鲸。

The country's withdrawal opens up a one-month window during which the other 88 IWC member states, including Russia, the UK, the US and Australia, can indicate if they also wish to leave.

日本的退出打开了一个月的窗口期,在此期间,国际捕鲸委员会的其他88个成员国,包括俄罗斯、英国、美国和澳大利亚等国家可以表明是否也想退出。

捕鲸

Japan announced last month that it was intending to leave the IWC and are due to resume commercial whale hunting later this year.

上个月日本宣布打算退出国际捕鲸委员会,并将于今年晚些时候恢复商业捕鲸活动。

Kitty Block, President of Humane Society International says: 'Japan would like to present itself as the wounded party, forced to leave the IWC because its reasonable requests are not being listened to.

'But the fact is, commercial whaling is completely unnecessary; in fact, there is no pressing economic need for it and there is plummeting demand for whale meat in Japan itself.

'We cannot allow one country to step outside of the IWC and recommence commercial whaling.

'If other countries, following Japan's example, start to do likewise, then we may see a return to the lawless days of previous centuries and the world's whales will suffer.'

国际人道协会主席基蒂·布洛克表示:“日本想把自己表现成受害方,因其合理要求没有得到听取,被迫离开国际捕鲸委员会。但事实是,商业捕鲸是完全没有必要的。事实上,对鲸鱼肉没有迫切的经济需求,日本自身对鲸鱼肉的需求也在急剧下降。我们不能允许一个国家退出国际捕鲸委员会,重新开始商业捕鲸。如果其他国家效仿日本的做法,开始采取同样的行动,那么我们可能会看到几个世纪前目无法纪的日子重现,世界上的鲸鱼将受到伤害”

Experts fear South Korea and Russia, and potentially other countries, may be buoyed by Japan's withdrawal and inspired to make the same move in the coming weeks.

专家担心,韩国、俄罗斯以及其他国家,可能会受到日本退出的影响,在未来几周采取同样的行动。

The Japanese go nment said last month the country will resume commercial whaling in July 2019 after a 30-year absence.

日本政府上月表示,在禁捕30年后,该国将于2019年7月恢复商业捕鲸活动。

The hunts will be limited to Japan's territorial waters and its 200-mile exclusive economic zone along the country's coasts, and Japan will stop its annual whaling expeditions to the Antarctic and north-west Pacific oceans.

捕鲸活动将仅限于日本领海及该国沿海200英里的专属经济区,日本将停止每年在南极和西北太平洋的捕鲸活动。

The IWC imposed a commercial moratorium in 1986 due to a dwindling whale population.

由于鲸鱼数量减少,国际捕鲸委员会于1986年颁布了商业禁令。

The withdrawal from the IWC may be a face-saving step to stop Japan's ambitious Antarctic hunts and scale down the scope of whaling to around the Japanese coasts.

退出国际捕鲸委员会可能是为了阻止日本雄心勃勃的南极捕鲸行动,并将捕鲸范围缩小到日本海岸附近,也是为了保全颜面。

Fisheries officials have said Japan annually consumes thousands of tons of whale meat from the research hunts, mainly by older Japanese seeking a nostalgic meal.

渔业官员曾表示,日本每年消耗数千吨鲸鱼肉,主要供那些寻求怀旧大餐的年长日本人,这些鲸鱼肉都来自科研捕鲸活动。。

But critics say they doubt commercial whaling could be a sustainable industry if Japanese young people do not see whales as food.

但批评人士表示,如果日本年轻人不把鲸鱼视为食物,他们怀疑商业捕鲸业能否成为一个可持续的产业。

The faster they go extinct, the lesser suffering they will go through. So much plastic inside the sea, so many fishing nets, their bellies clogs with plastic, toxic sea water, humans trying to kill them, global warming, scarcity of food, .....

Absolutely sick, stupid and disgusting. The number of whales in our seas is falling! Culture and tradition is NO excuse for rendering a species endangered or extinct. Do these simpletons not know that in time there will be no whales left! What are they going to do then? And we will have lost another natural wonder of this world, due to our own human arrogance and entitlement. This must be stopped.

恶心、无法接受!海洋中的鲸鱼数量正在下降!文化和传统不能成为使一个物种濒危或灭绝的借口。这些傻瓜难道不知道,过不了多久,鲸鱼就会灭绝吗?之后,他们要怎么办?由于人类的傲慢,我们将失去这个世界的一个自然奇观。必须制止这种情况。
