Aquariums flout Japan's ban on dolphin catching method

Aquariums are cutting ties with a Japanese zoo organisation to avoid its ban on the 'drive hunting' of dolphins.

The Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums said it would expel members that used the controversial method, after it was itself suspended from the World body in 2015.

However, aquariums say the policy undermines their efforts to breed dolphins.
