Whale meat found to be sold in restaurants in Korea and Los Angeles

leave a comment »

Even though an international moratorium on hunting whales was set in 1986, scientists have recently found whale meat being sold in restaurants in Los Angeles and Seoul.

The whale meat found had DNA that matched whales that were captured by Japanese fishermen in 2007. The moratorium allows Japan to capture several hundred whales yearly for scientific research, however many of the whales have found their way onto the black market.

Many of the whales species that were found are in danger of becoming extinct.
