Supplementary notes

*According to the source, Japanese whaling was carried out under Article VIII ('scientific whaling') since 1988. In 2014 however, the UN's International Court of Justice determined that Japan's Antarctic whaling was commercial and therefore illegal. In 2018, the Japanese government withdrew from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) to officially resume commercial whaling in Japanese waters.
Figures include minke, fin, sei, Bryde's, and sperm whales.
