This story completely missed the point of the study. The Japanese investigators postulated that penguins were responsible for depleting krill stock, and the it was the consequential lack of food, not whaling responsible for declining whale populations. The conclusion was that increased whaling activity would resulting in larger krill stocks, and in time more food for whales, so more whales.
