The Federal opposition wants the Australian Government to fund a customs vessel, which will patrol Aussie waters for whale hunters.
It comes after a Japanese ship harpooned a whale in the Australian Antarctic Territory.

"There should be a customs vessel, there should be representations in Tokyo. Anything less is a complete failure."
