Choice whale meat, stringy and fishy tasting, will be aboard for human consumption in countries like Britain and Japan. Here and In the United States, it is also fed to pets. The British Ministry of Food has bought in advance the catch of the three expeditions going out from the United Kingdom and South Africa. There will also be whale bone for corset stays. And from the harder to find sperm whales will come sperm oil for machinery and the rare, precious amber gris, used as a fixative In perfume. International Limit.
