Export of dolphins in Solomon Islands to resume.

 A prominent dolphin exporter in Solomon islands is planning to continue his live-exports next month.
According to a Solomon Island newspaper Robert Satu says his company Marine Export Limited is already working on an order to send 28 dolphins to China.

However a US-based conservation group, the Earth Island Institute, says it’ll be difficult to export dolphins while a moratorium on the trade exists, according to Radio Australia.

Satu said because of the Solomon government’s lack of keeping its promise to compensate him and the Solomon Islands Marine Export Limited (SIMEL) for halting their dolphin export activities has motivated him to resume the business.
