    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..
