In the spring issue, IMMP reported that “Japan’s National Fisheries Agency sent officials to [the towns of] Futo and Taiji to warn local fishers to beware of activists taking pictures.”

This was incorrect. Iruka and Kujira Action Network (IKAN) Director Nanami Kurasawa responds:

“I heard from a person that officials from National Fisheries Agency and local government of Shizuoka visited Futo in September, yet nobody knows the details of their visit.”

We offer our deepest apologies to Nanami Kurasawa and the IKAN for the error.
