The Gorton’s Family Whale Killing Business

In 2001, Japanese company Nissui – long involved with the large scale commercial hunting of great whales – through a US subsidiary purchased seafood giant Gorton’s, Inc of Gloucester, Massachusetts.

Gorton’s, the leading retail distributor of frozen fish products in the US, plays an important role in the financial success of Nissui.

This report urges the US company to persuade Nissui to make amends for its contribution to the destruction of the world’s great whales by ensuring a permanent end to the whale hunting activities.
