Key to Accompany App. 3.9: Flensing Blue and Fin Whales

“v”

indicates ventral views.

“d”

indicates dorsal views.

“A”

The original cuts are made on the ventral and dorsal regions. The heavy lines on the surface of the diagrams represent the incisions in the blubber. The shaded portion of the carcass is that area covered by blubber in all views. The loop between the shoulders is inserted to aid in turning the carcass over as the operations proceed.

“B”

The first strips are taken from the ventral and dorsal regions. By taking the strip from the ventral region half the bottom of the mouth is removed, exposing the baleen. See “Bv.”

“Bv2

The second strip is taken from the ventral region; this removes the external covering from the remainder of the abdominal region and extracts the tongue. In blue whales, and large fins, a special bight, or third strip, is generally taken to remove the tongue.

“C”

The carcass is turned over. The views change. Only a section of blubber remains on the dorsal region that was formally resting on deck. The ventral surface has been completely stripped. See “Cd” and “Cv.”

“D”

The dorsal region as it finally appears with the blubber retained by the rostrum of the skull and the flukes. The flensing operations are completed.
