Tony,

Whale oil is only good if it's ocean caught. Shamu types have too much omega-6 from their poor Sea World diet.

I'm having trouble determining if this thread is for real or not.

Tony,
Just get canned tuna that isn't "dolphin-safe". Voila, dolphin oil you didn't have to pay for!

Both are inferior to the almighty seal oil:

I prefer Yangzi river dolphin oil -- research shows that it's more highly anti-inflamatory than bottlenose dophin oil.

Raw blue whale blubber is also superior, especially right after the summer feeding season, when their diet is mainly krill.

Have you tried squeezing your own dolphins? It works out a lot cheaper than buying the bottled stuff.

Agreed. I found a relatively cheap dolphin press on eBay for $199. I figure I'll make up the cost by squeezing my own. And let's face it, nothing beats the flavor of fresh squeezed dolphin oil.

I had to clear out half of my garage to make room, but SO worth it.
