FILE - In this Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014 file photo provided by Sea Shepherd Conservation Society on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014, fishermen on boats go over bottlenose dolphins in Taiji, western Japan. Japanese fishermen killed about 40 dolphins targeted for their meat as part of a larger group trapped recently in what activists say was the biggest roundup they have witnessed in the last four annual hunts. A group of American celebrities and other activists want President Barack Obama to refuse to sign an international trade agreement until Japan bans the capture and slaughter of dolphins in the fishing town of Taiji.
