WHALES-CONSERVATION AND PROTECTION

June 29, 1990 [H. Con. Res. 287]

Whereas whales are a unique marine resource of great esthetic and

scientific interest and are a vital part of the marine ecosystem; Whereas the indefinite moratorium on commercial whale killing

adopted by the International Whaling Commission in 1982 to take

effect in 1986 is subject to review and reconsideration in 1990; Whereas this moratorium has not yet resulted in a full cessation of

whale killing for commerce; Whereas there remain great uncertainties as to the true status of

whale populations, due to the difficulty of studying them, their slow reproductive rate, and the unpredictability of their recovery

even when fully protected; Whereas whales are subject to grave environmental threats from

nonhunting causes such as pollution, loss of habitat, increased shipping, oil and gas exploration, and the use of driftnets and

39–194 0 - 91 - 25 : QL 3 Part 6

other nonselective fishing techniques, which underscore the need

for special safeguards for whale survival; Whereas the International Whaling Commission has not yet dem

onstrated its capability for strict and truly international monitoring and enforcement, and for insistence on humane killing

methods; Whereas powerful moral and ethical questions have been raised

regarding the killing of whales for profit; and Whereas a full decade free of whale killing for commercial purposes

is the bare minimum necessary to seek satisfactory answers to the questions, concerns, and uncertainties cited above: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of the Congress that

(1) United States policy should promote the maximum conservation and protection of the world's whale populations;

(2) toward that goal, the United States should work to continue the International Whaling Commission moratorium on the commercial killing of whales and maintain zero catch limits for all whale stocks for at least another decade, that is, to the year 2000 or beyond;

(3) in addition, the United States should work to strengthen the International Whaling Commission as the indispensable organization for safeguarding for future generations the great natural resources represented by the whale stocks, and should encourage the Commission to establish and carry out long-term programs of nonlethal research and comprehensive assessment for all whale stocks on a global basis, including small cetaceans; and

(4) in so promoting the conservation and protection of the world's whale populations, the United States should make the fullest use of diplomatic channels, appropriate domestic and international law, and all other available means.

Agreed to June 29, 1990.
