Long Island, whale processing - Whales and Whaling picture gallery 37

Previous | Next


"Skinning whale to get at blubber, Long Island Beach". Shore processing in the shallows is an ideal solution for small scale whaling by local communities that used the whales for their own purposes rather than selling the products elsewhere. It continued well after industrial whaling was established and still does in many places in the world. Here is a scene from the turn of the century, late 1800's to early 1900's.

Note the ropes that are on the whale. These will be for anchoring the carcass, stripping off the blubber and for turning the whale over as one side is processed.
