A search on Facebook turned up this item. Not new, but interesting:

A whaling crew from the whaling village of Barrouaillie, in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, took a single Bryde's whale in early May 200 0. The crew were out hunting for their usual target species, short-finned pilot whale (locally known as "blackfish"), but none were found on this particular occasion. However, the boats encountered a small group of Bryde's whales and one was successfully harpooned. Advice on how to cook the meat of this baleen whale was obtained from the renowned Bequian humpback whaler, Athneal Ollivierre.
