In Japan, some people actually eat whale blubber. It’s a very expensive delicacy.
A periphiral expansion on Sarahtonin’s answer:
As if Japan’s whaling practices weren’t controversial enough, recent studies have reported that Minke whaleshave significantly less blubber nowadays, and are getting thinner still. This is because they compete with the humpback whale for food, which has become more scarce, due to changes in the ecosystem.
Japan could use this to justify the hunting of endangered humpback whales, and the loss of blubber could affect the survivability and reproductive rates of both species, so this is a gravely threatening development to pacific whales.
