"The primary strategy of our Antarctic Whale Defence Campaign is to secure the slipway of the Nisshin Maru and allow no dead whales to pass into this floating abattoir. We have achieved this goal. We will continue to block the slipway of this poaching ship, relentless in our mission to protect the whales and the sanctity of the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary."
Wow! heady stuff indeed. While the language is a little exaggerated and somewhat pompous the end result is the important point that the slipway of the MS Nisshin Maru is blocked preventing whales being hauled on board.
If the SSCS fleet can continue this blockage and shut down the Japanese Whaling Fleet (JWF) then Operation Useless may become the Operation Relentless as was intended. So for once NAUTICAL LOG says "Bravo Zulu SSCS and keep up this good work ."
