Abstract The Sea Shepherd called it Operation Musashi in this its fifth crusade against the Japanese Whaling Fleet.3 Sea Shepherd has claimed considerable success in its endeavours, maintaining that because of them the Japanese Whaling Fleet in the 2008-2009 season only achieved a take of 679 Minke whales out of a target of 935 and only one of the endangered Fin whales out of a target of 50 whales.4 It must be noted that the controversial and at times aggressive tactics at sea of Sea Shepherd's vessels had led to its having been denied accreditation for observer status to the International Whaling Commission since 1987 .5 In the 2008-2009 season the Australian government did not send its Fisheries Support vessel, the Oceanic Viking to gather evidence for a possible legal challenge to Japan and adopted a more diplomatic stance instead.
