Korea may be changing its plans to begin whaling for scientific research, which they recently announced plans to do at the annual International Whaling Commission (IWC) meeting.
Under IWC agreement, whaling is permissible if the whales are used for scientific research, but Korea’s announcement was met with criticism and seen as a thinly veiled attempt at commercial whaling.

No further details were announced.
