Japan's list of environmental sins is growing. If it wasn't already pushing the boundaries of acceptable behaviour by killing whales in the Southern Ocean and slaughtering dolphins in Taiji it
now seems that Japan's industrial and financial giants want to get in on the act.
Mitsubishi have tried to corner the market by stockpiling 40% of the world's supply of critically endangered bluefin tuna and now Nomura Securities Company appear to be doing similar with other overexploited fish and 'seafood' marine species.
As the world's fisheries fail and demand for fish increases, Nomura hope to make a killing by creating the world's first investment trust specifically targeting global 'seafood' and fisheries related businesses.
