Randy,

I don't know what country you live in, but in the U.S., you would not be able to legally use whale blubber because all marine mammals (living or dead) in the U.S. are protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972. Many of the large whale species are additionally protected by the Endangered Species Act of 1973. Last, but certainly not least, trafficking of protected species (and any part of them) is sharply regulated by CITES.
