Whales for Sale on Amazon.com in Japan

Despite the heavily subsidized nature of the industry, and the consistent opposition from most people on the planet, the hunt and sale of whale, dolphin and porpoise continues in Japan. This includes sales on the internet via one of the biggest international internet companies, Amazon. PR Newswire posted this story about this subject. There are a few disturbing aspects to this story, not the least of which involves the sale of mercury-tainted products that pose a risk to human health.
