Whale Wars is an interesting addition since the series came to an official end last year as Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson said Japan’s use of military-grade technology to track its ships has ended its attempts to stop the Southern Ocean whale hunt.

“We don’t have their money, we don’t have their technology, but we are going to have to find an alternative way to deal with them, and we will.”

He said trade deals were taking precedence over conservation laws.

“They have made a lot of promises that they haven’t kept, but really what it’s all about is appeasing Japan, not upsetting Japan. Trade deals take priority over conservation law,” he said.

Former Greens leader Bob Brown said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull had “whale blood on his hands” for not doing enough to stop Japan’s Southern Ocean whale hunt.

But the Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg said: “No country has done more than Australia to try to end Japan’s so-called ‘scientific’ whaling, particularly in the Southern Ocean.

“The Government has made representations at the highest level in Japan and we are working hard through the International Whaling Commission (IWC) to end any commercial or so-called ‘scientific’ whaling and promote whale conservation.

“Australia recently invested an additional $1.5 million to the IWC’s highly successful Southern Ocean Research Partnership, to support non-lethal whale research in the Southern Ocean.”
