The hunt, which was delayed for two days due to bad weather, saw 12 boats leave the port shortly after 5 a.m. and search for dolphins in waters up to 40 kilometers off the coast, local fishery cooperative officials said. The boats found a pod of grampus dolphins but were unable to drive them shoreward and returned to the harbor by around 10:30 a.m., they said. Among the protesters was American pro-dolphin activist Ric O’Barry, who featured in the Oscar-winning 2009 documentary film “The Cove” about the town’s controversial dolphin hunt.
