We still eat whale meat in the Faroe Islands; I may still have some of this meat in the freezer. (Eat at most once a month, thanks to pollution.)
I have - as I usually do - enhanced the color a bit. See Sea of Blood for unedited hemoglobin color.
Red list: Lower risk/least concern. 2008 update: Now listed as Data Deficient. But please note that whaling is not listed among possible threats: anthropogenic sound, bycatch, entanglement in fisheries and competition with squid fisheries.
Update: added to the bluelist pool as a 'recommended travel experience'. But I can't really recommend planning on seeing a pilot hunt, because they are rare and random. The trip I was on - small boat out to Skúvoy and walking around on the island - is itself worth recommending. Then I must 'recommend' that you happen to be in the 3rd boat to join the hunt. (I've been living here for 18 years and seen 3 hunts so far.)
Then there is the question whether you want to see this.
(Foolish word play: The pilot whale is not on the redlist, it's on the bluelist.)
54 whales - totaling 395 skinn. About 20 tons of meat and 10 tons of blubber.
