well, of course, the "Institute for Cetecean Research" is just another name for the Japanese whaling ships.... "lethal research" is the loop-hole that allows Japan to hunt these endangered species... ....i.e. call it "lethal research" in order to hunt whales.

The only nation that allows whaling legally? The great United States of America, been letting the natives in Alaska do it for years. Some people should worry about their own country before trying to get themselves killed in the Artic Circle. The ady gil clearly powered forward into the shonan maru 2 making no attempt to yield to the much larger vessel which was under power and clearly staying on course in pitching seas. Port/ starboard right of way means nothing when you’re a 4 hour helicopter ride from help in freezing water. They are lucky the ship didn’t turn around and finish off the wantabe rebels.
