Is Mister Splashy Pants now safe from Japan's whaling fleet?

With Japan admitting that this year's annual Antarctic whale hunt will probably yield poorer results due to hunt disruption and domestic sushi franchises and supermarkets indicating a reluctance to sell whale meat due to dwindling demand; will whales like Mister Splashy Pants be safe from future hunts or will he remain vulnerable because the Institute of Cetacean Research again inserts Humpback whales in next year's planned kill quota.

The Institute is obviously not backing down on its 'right' to conduct so-called scientific whaling and has quite a little
PR war underway with no less than 25 media releases posted on its webpage so far this year.
