Florida congressman calls for end to Japanese whaling

Congressman Matt Gaetz, a Republican representative from Florida, has put forward a resolution in the US House of Representatives calling for an end to Japanese whaling.

In a speech last month he praised Australia for the stance it had taken on the issue and said it was time for the US to now act. He highlighted the issue of Japan hunting whales in Antarctica for commercial purposes under the guise of scientific whaling.

Mr Gaetz wants to see the issue discussed as part of trade negotiations with Japan and will raise it with President Trump as soon as possible.
