Sea Shepherd Drives Whaling Fleet Into Disarray and out of the Antarctic Treaty Zone

On Monday January 6 at 1650 AEDT, after a 360-mile chase, The Sea Shepherd Fleet drove the Japanese whaling fleet’s factory ship, the Nisshin Maru, out of the Antarctic Treaty Zone.
Sea Shepherd has all ships in the Japanese whaling fleet accounted for, and can confirm that the whale poaching fleet is scattered and currently not hunting whales. The harpoon ships are separated by hundreds of miles. The Nisshin Maru is on the run and unable to stop and whale in its self-designated whale-poaching grounds.

Great start to 2014 for the Sea Shepherd crew! Hopefully they can keep the whalers on the run for the rest of their hunting season.
