Guardian (UK) / AP Poachers in Peru Still Killing Dolphins: "While killing dolphins and the sale of their meat has been illegal in Peru since 1990, offenders largely went unpunished until the mid-1990s, when activists began campaigning for the Fisheries Ministry to enforce laws and for Lima municipal authorities to pull the licenses of restaurants serving dolphin." A classic tale of the environment being caught between poverty and a harpoon. I never ate dolphin in Peru so it was not widely advertised when I was there in the 1980s.
