The unpredictability of the beachings does not lend itself to easy research, ...
... and the japanese are known to hunt the whales for food, oil, etc, not for research. And why the Japanese at all?
There is some evidence that mass whale groundings may linked with solar storms. A team from the University of Kiel compared records of sperm whale stranding in the North Sea between 1712 and 2003 and found that in many cases they coincided with period of high solar activity. In a report published in the Journal of Sea Research scientists theorized that geomagnetic storms associated with high solar activity disrupts the whale internal navigation system and caused them to run aground.
In July 2004, 150 to 200 melon-headed whales were observed milling around Kauai Bay in Hawaii, confused and disoriented, after mid-frequency sonar was used during military exercises about 20 miles offshore from there. The whales are normally found in deep water but were swimming packed together within 100 meters of the shore, showing clear signs of stress. Action by local citizens prevent the whales from beaching themselves. The Navy acknowledged that it used the sonar periodically for 20 hours before the whales nearly beached themselves.
THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA NEAR GREECE - In 1996, twelve Cuvier's beakedwhales documented to be exposed to NATO sonar at 150-160 decibels werefound stranded. At the same time about 200 stranded dolphins were suspectedof suffering from tissue explosion. (Nature, 1996) LFAS levels to be usedby the U.S. are reported to be 180 decibels in areas near shore and couldgo considerably higher, once deployment is underway and this program is classified.

The following is dated February 2011 - - - Prior to large N.Z Earthquake,
Is this another such warning ????
I didn't see a story that relates in your link, but my first thought was Large Earthquake Ahead.
