One of many articles covering the new film by Ocean Preservation Society on the Taiji dolphin hunt “The Cove”. This one mentions the Dall’s porpoise hunt.
“Even within Japan, the Taiji hunt is small compared to one that happens in the north, where harpooners kill more than 10,000 Dall’s porpoises every year for food—five times the recent annual take in Taiji.
