Download the report

In Japan’s history of commercial whaling, seafood company Kyokuyo Co., Ltd (Kabushiki Kaisha Kyokuyo) has been a major player. Since it began hunting whales in the late 1930s, Kyokuyo has profited from the deaths of over 130,000 great whales, including more than 10,000 whales since the international ban on commercial whaling took effect in 1986.
