    Hi Wendy,

    Well, I had as tough a time as you. The only info that I could find was that the bladder of a fin whale holds 5.5 gallons (Dr. Dave Casper; http://www2.ucsc.edu/seymourcenter/PDF/2.%20Ms.%20B%20measurements.pdf).
     
    Will that do?

    I hope you can help me!  I have been trying to find out the size and/or
    capacity of a whale bladder - more specifically, the bladder of a blue
    whale.  I have been unable to find that information.  Can you point me
    in the right direction?

    Thanks for your help,

    Wendy Swann
