"Who's dumping their garbage on our patch then?" "The same crowd who tell their constituents they should recycle their baked-bean cans!" 13 November, 2005.'

Reference Number: DCDL-0000438

We are observing an underwater scene. Two large fish are wondering who has dumped the ship that has just been scuttled and that is settling nearby. One suggests to the other that it is an example of recycling similar to the way that baked-bean cans are recycled. Another fish says 'What a buzz! For a moment I thought it was a Japanese whaler!' The reference is to the scuttling of the Leander class frigate, HMNZS Wellington, in the harbour so that it can be used by divers. The reference to the Japanese whaler is because there is continuing pressure and criticism of Japanese whaling.
