So did Japan have a clause to scam who allowed the country minke whales was allowed to grow, capture and killing for scientific purposes. Then meat was sold.

Japanese scientists claimed that the research was necessary to the diet, and the average age of the animals to determine. But critics studies have always rejected. It would be a poor excuse for what in reality is commercial whaling.
After a lot of bickering about the virtue and vice of the whaling and scientific research to the animals, decided to Japan eventually to get out of the IWC.
