importing beluga whales



since 1972, the US law prohibits the capture of marine mammals in the states’ waters. and their citizens could not do so elsewhere as well. the import and exports of marine mammals and their products are prohibited too. the Georgia Aquarium attempted to import 18 beluga whales from Russia and was rejected, and now they are asking the judge to overturn the denial. many people and organizations are opposing their attempt and hope that the judge would not set a sample for the future.
