Zhu predicted a further decline in production and consu上海419论坛女神会所

Authorities have been adapting swine fever controls and prevention measures since late last year to effectively contain the infec上海419论坛女神会所
tious disease, which has a high mortality rate for pigs but is not transmittable to humans, Xin said at the Gl

上海419论坛For example, all hogs within 3 kilometers of farms where swine fever had been verified used to be slaughtered for dise

Li Shuilong, president of the China Meat Association, said that although African swine fever has caused serious damage to the

Japan will resume commercial whaling Monday amid criticism from anti-whaling states a
上海419论坛nd environmental groups after the country withdrew from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) on Sunday.
Japan’s withdrawal from the IWC is the first time in its postwar history that it has withdrawn from a major international organization. Japan has lobbied for the resumption of commercial whaling for 30 years.上海419论坛
Last September, the IWC’s annual meeting rejected Japan’s latest proposal to resume commercial whaling. The Japanese government had threatened to withdraw from the international organization.
Japan announced its intention to withdraw last December, saying it was no longer possible to resume commercial whaling under IWC rules.
Several whaling ships are ready to leave the western port city of Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture, on Monday to start whali上海419论坛

Japan says it will conduct commercial whaling only in its territorial waters and exclusive ec
上海419论坛女神会所onomic zones, hunting minke and other species that have large enough numbers, within quotas set by the IWC-adopted method.
Environmental activists are criticizing the resumption in light of resource conservation and animal protection.
