Hunters use a metal pole inserted into the water and attack with hammers in a bid to create sounds that will confuse the animals and bring them into a cove. Afterward, the entrance to the inlet is closed with nets, giving divers the chance to go into the water to either capture or kill the creatures.
For the period of 2019/2020, fishermen in Taiji have been given a quota of 1,749 dolphins. Included are 101 short-finned pilot whales they are allowed to slaughter and capture.
Some of the dolphins were dragged underneath plastic tarps
Annually, fishermen are given a chance by the Japanese Fisheries Agency Authorities to capture or kill over 16,000 cetaceans. However, it remains unclear how many whales have been caught since July.
