"No drop in orders for Taiji dolphins despite restriction"

VAOJ grows weary in its continuing reporting of "The Cove" related news. But here's the latest...

From The Japan Times, 8/11/15:

Orders for dolphins caught in drive hunts in Taiji, Wakayama Prefecture, this fiscal year are coming in at almost the same rate as before even though the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums has banned its members from buying animals caught via such methods.

A local fishermen’s union said Monday that the orders are mostly coming in from facilities that are not members of JAZA and dealers who may be exporting the dolphins.
