«It isn't clear yet how Australia will frame its anti-whaling case in court. It could argue that Japan is killing far more whales than necessary or that alternate research methods exist that would not involve killing whales.


Australia could also argue that Japan has failed to carry out an adequate study of whaling's impact on the sensitive Antarctic environment.


Alternatively, it could argue that Japan's whaling activities violate environmental protocols of the Antarctic Treaty System, of which Japan is a member.»
