The Gorton’s Family Whale Killing Business
Since 2001, when Nissui purchased Gorton’s, more than 2,700 whales have been killed by Kyodo Senpaku. This is part of the more than 175,000 whales that Nissui is responsible for killing since it began hunting whales in the 1930s. Over its long history of whaling, Nissui killed over 1,700 humpback and over 44,000 fin whales, contributing to their severe overhunting and consequent threatened and endangered status.
