The Cove - a Documentary about Dolphin fishing in Japan

The Cove is an award-winning documentary about the barbaric dolphin slaughter in Taiji Japan.
The Cove exposes the slaughter of more than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises off the coast of Japan every year, and how their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is sold as food in Japan and other parts of Asia, often labeled as whale meat. The majority of the world is not aware this is happening.
The focus of the Social Action Campaign for The Cove is to create worldwide awareness of this annual practice as well as the dangers of eating seafood contaminated with mercury, and to pressure those in power to put an end to the slaughter.
 It is available on DVD, soundtrack, and has its own brand of wine.

The Hurricane and Tidal Wave last year may have wiped out the Taiji fishing industry but they have rebuilt and are at it again. This film still applies today.
