whale farming

Some people think I have too much free time on my hands.

Last night during Good Eats I made a comment about whales. Specifically, why don’t we farm them?

We farm catfish, salmon, tilapia, alligators, deer, bison, shrimp, and more. So why not whales? Obviously, some varieties would take a lot of room… but how about beluga whales? Or some other small-to-medium species?

In the heyday of whaling, [almost] nothing of the animal was wasted, and certainly that would be the case if we started growing them intentionally.

It’s an idea.
