Japan Whaling Association
The Japan Whaling Association (JWA) was established in December 1959 as a nonprofit foundation. After the moratorium on commercial whaling adopted by the IWC came into effect, JWA disbanded in July 1988, and re-formed in October 1988 as a private organization with the aim of resumption of whaling.

We endeavor after the revival and sound development of the whaling industry by collecting, studying, and clarifying various types of information about whaling, and by planning and implementing various measures for resuming whaling.
