- Statement -
The Boso Peninsula has been a mainstay in the whaling industry for centuries. This industry and the environment have seen many men lose their lives and struggle to survive at sea. The pursuit of success and the riches of the ocean sustained the industry. While an industry for profit the poachers show respect to the whales by erecting monuments and memorials to celebrate annually this relationship. However, in recent years the situation surrounding whaling is becoming severer and its scale is shrinking.
