About 100 bottle neck and short fin dolphins swim at sunrise in the cove that is at the center of a controversial film, due for release in the UK next month, in Taiji, Japan on 10 September 2009. The captured dolphins were the first catch of the season at Taiji, which has come under increased international pressure following the release of a film documenting their capture and slaughter in the town..Photographer: Robert Gilhoolyy.
