I was an exchange student for a year in Norway when I was 16/17, and I tried whale meat. Not sure what I was thinking, as I am so dead against whaling (more so now than then obviously). I think I was just going along to get along as we went to a pub that had whale meat as their speciality and I felt a tad pressured by my host family. It had a taste quite unlike anything I've ever eaten, so I can't compare it to anything. All I can say is it tasted like....well....whale
And no, I wouldn't eat it again, I think we should leave the whales in the oceans where they belong.
