Dear Tinka,

We did it! Your actions helped make a difference for whales.

I wanted to be the first to share with you some fantastic news. Japan’s fourth largest fisheries company, Kyokuyo, has pledged to stop its sale of whale meat in Japan. Its decision follows a campaign led by Humane Society International, the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).

In April, the coalition of environmental and animal welfare groups called on American company True World Foods, which partnered with Kyokuyo to distribute sushi in the United States, to persuade Kyokuyo to stop selling whale products. According to Kyokuyo, it has ceased production of whale products and is in the process of selling off its remaining stockpile.

Without companies like Kyokuyo, Japan's whaling industry will fall flat. This news is especially timely as Japan is pushing its plan to kill even more whales at the International Whaling Commission meeting, happening right now in Alaska. Read HSI's daily coverage of the IWC.

This campaign would not have been a success without your tireless efforts. Thank you again to each of you who sent emails to True World Foods and Kyokuyo. This victory reminds us to never to give up, and that there are rewards for compassionate action and perseverance. Please share this tremendous news with others and let them know that you had a part in making it happen.

Seems that the Norwegians don't give a darn and are killing whales with the excuse that are too many of them and their fishermen lost revenues.
