Whale Meat on Sale

Newer Older

Whale meat on sale in Yamaguchi Japan, just before the New Year. Occasionally I see it in supermarkets.

I have a friend that turns the packs upside down whenever he finds them on display.

    they're both black and white? i'm very interested! especially in vancouver, where people are so anti-whaling to the extreme.. (i'm.. indifferent. still learning)

    Hi tam tam

    I think that the black and white are the skin and the flesh, perhaps even the blubber, of the whale.

    I hope you enjoyed your visit to Japan.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Whaling ⇂, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    Yes, the pale stuff with one black side is the blubber.
