Butchered whales reveal Japanese fleet
Radical environmentalists say they have followed a trail of "remnants of butchered whales" to relocate the Japanese whaling fleet in New Zealand's Ross Sea today.
Sea Shepherd earlier this month located the whale factory ship Nisshin Maru on the western side of the Ross Sea but the whalers then fled.
In a statement they said they found Nisshin Maru and its whale chasers on the other side of the Ross Sea, 1600 kilometres north east of Scott Base.
Sea Shepherd said it was forcing the factory ship to suspend whaling.
A helicopter aboard the Sea Shepherd ship the Steve Irwin found the Nisshin Maru and two harpoon ships, Yushin Maru No. 1 and No. 2.
