Cutting up the very big fish: Balaenoptera physalus, ballena rorcual or fin whale


A big fish, with bone cancer -was the story on the chiringuito’s terrace-, came to die in the bay. It took 6 people some 8 hours to cut it up. Just like in the old days, of the history of nearby Zahara de las Atunas, where the tunas were butchered on the beach.

Most of the tons of the whale’s meat/fat got bulldozered under the sand at less than 100m of ‘our’ chiringuito.
