    Default apart for = another version of apart from

    Hello again!

    There is a worldwide ban on hunting whales, apart for those used for scientific research. Japanese vessels used this provision last year to catch 103 minke whales in the Southern Ocean.

    Shouldn't 'apart for' in the above question be replaced by 'apart from' or is it a typo? Maybe it is an Australian version.

    Thank you.

    It should be 'apart from', shouldn't it?
