Abstract

I. PARTICIPATION The forty-first annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission was attended by delegates from 28 member states, 58 international nongovernmental organizations, and several government and intergovernmental organizations, and several govern- ment and intergovernmental observers.' The main subjects of the meeting were as follows: Indian Ocean Sanctuary, comprehensive assessment of whale stocks, whale stocks, aboriginal subsistence whaling, national research programs involving whaling under special (scientific) permit, socioeconomic implications of the moratorium, so- called small cetaceans, revision of the Convention, finances, and coming meetings. II. THE INDIAN OCEAN SANCTUARY The Indian Ocean Sanctuary was to cease as of October 24, 1989, unless the forty-first meeting of the Commission decided otherwise. While Japan and Iceland held the opinion that the sanctuary should be discontinued, the Technical Committee ap- proved and amended schedule paragraph 7 to read, "The prohibition will apply until 24 October 1992 until the Commission decides otherwise," and the Commission ap- proved this amendment by consensus.2 Thus, the Indian Ocean Sanctuary duration has been extended another 3 years. The Commission was informed of the Scientific Committee's observation that there was inadequate coordination between scientists in the Indian Ocean, and re- search vessels encountered access problems into waters
