Unbelievable you scooped me!
I was just going to start a thread on this..
here is the Nature article:
Shiro Wada et al.: A newly discovered species of living baleen whale. In: Nature, Vol. 426, p. 278-281 (2003)
"Hey look, a new animal we ain't never seen before. Quick, get the harpoon, Lets kill it!"

I'm suprised Ivan did not scooped me
They kill whales for research?
Well, i know that at least some Japanese 'research vessels' do...and since the whales are already dead, they might as well just cut it up into edible little pieces and ship them off to well respected restaurants.
But they may not be representative of the entire research of the world.
It is worse, they kill wales to find out how wales multiply. Not.. if you keep fishing them..
