US sushi restaurant caught serving whale meat

Posted by Junichi Kawagoe on 12.2010 News Out of English Newspaper   0 comments   0 trackback
US federal prosecutors have filed charges against a sushi restaurant in California and its chef for illegally serving whale meat.

The Hump restaurant in Santa Monica and its Japanese-American chef were charged on Wednesday with selling sliced raw meat, which prosecutors say is from a Sei whale.

The United States designates the mammal as an endangered species, meaning serving its meat violates the country's sea mammal protection law.

Marine mammal activists contacted authorities after secretly recording the restaurant's activities on video and securing a sample of the meat they were served as evidence.

The activists were working with producers of the Academy Award winning documentary "The Cove" that criticized Japan's dolphin hunting.

If convicted, the chef could face up to a year in prison and a fine of 100,000 dollars, while the restaurant could be fined 200,000 dollars.

A spokesperson for the restaurant said they want to solve the issue by paying the fines.
