Whale meat

I was just think'n. you never hear about whale meat. I know 100 years ago, New Englanders were out there spearing whales for oil but what about the massive muscles in the tail and organs. A year a sea, runn'in out of vitales, there must have been whale meat.

Even CruisingDad's grille is not big enough to bbq a blue whale steak.
And really, what straight man in his right mind is gonna brag about eating sperm whale? And let's leave alone the snicker-inducing sperm whale organs.
Why eat whale when there are so many other tasty and more easily portioned fruit of the sea.

Most of the civilised world protects whales rather than eating them. I'll be happier when the entire world does the same.
But anyway, historically I'm sure the N.Englanders ate some of it.

I'm all for native peoples eating whales but then again they aren't out in the southern ocean with huge harpoon and factory ships killing the whales.

I heard whale/dolphin meat tastes pretty bad... they eat it in japan, I understand it is pretty cheap because there is little demand for it...

I have tried muktuk (whale blubber).

It tastes exactly as you would imagine: salty, fishy, fatty and has the consistency of firm, un-ripened cocoanut i.e. not something I would want to make a meal out of.

when i was in greenland i got a chunk of dark red whale meat. the steaks tasted like fishy venison. we marinated them and then ate them. a shrimp trawler captain came aboard with a chunk of muctuc. he sliced off a piece and said try some. it tasted like cod liver oil. then he gave me a drink of danish bitter schnapps to wash it down. he also gave us a big box of frozen shrimp. we had to eat it all because we had no freezer.

Saw whale meat, dark red, in the freezer of Jungle Jim's International Market near Cincinnati last weekend.
