    Dunno. I tried a zebra steak once and the missus didn’t speak to me for the rest of the evening.

    No. No logical reason to do so.

    What if it was a really stupid dolphin?

    If it was cooked well aye. Wouldn’t eat a ready meal version.

    Intelligent food for intelligent people 😉

    I reckon a dolphin would eat me if it was hungry so I’d reciprocate if the need arose, but not as a choice from a menu.

    When I was at uni, before the chain poundlands and the like, the local pound shop sold non dolphin friendly tuna, think it was 6 or 8 tins for a pound. It definitely didn’t taste like normal tuna, bit there were probably a number of factors at play there.

    I’ve never understood why you’d eat tuna but not dolphin.

    yes.. bet it’s yummy

    any meat eater would be a bit deluded and hypocritical to turn their nose up at it

    I saw it on a menu in the American Deep South, somewhere along the Gulf Coast. Would have tried it but it was on the dinner menu & the portions were so big we were eating off the lunch menu!
    Always regretted not trying it..

    No. No logical reason to do so.

    Yes. There is no logical reason not to do so.

    If your prepared to eat one dead animal then why draw a line at dolphins.

    We should fish them sustainably – like we should some species of whales too.

    Maybe not a whole one, in a single sitting. But a dolphin steak or dolphin and chips.

    Mrs aa says the idea is deplorable, i cant make my mind up.

    I’m a meat eater but draw the line at whales and Dolphins, and I guess apes and monkeys too. My, probably highly flawed, logic is that they have the intelligence to comprehend and understand what’s going on around them so you can’t kill them humanely. I’m all for eating meat, but I do try as best as reasonably possible to only eat meat that’s been well looked after and humanely slaughtered. I don’t believe you could ever do that with Dolphins. Cattle and fish don’t have that level of intelligence and can be easily fooled and slaughtered without stressing them, they act more on instinct.

    Having said that I love octopus and squid and they are supposed to be pretty darn clever.

    My mum ate a dolphin steak on holiday once.
    Can’t say I was that impressed when she told me.
    I suppose it depends whether they actually fished for them or whether they just use the ones which are caught up in fishing nets ‘accidentally’ ?

    You could include pigs in that category IMO.

    Dolphin on menus in southern American states is actually a fish caled a Mahi Mahi.

    I’m sold by epicyclo.

    I eaten dolphin many times in the Caribbean and S America.
    Of course what they call dolphin on the menu is actually Mahi-Mahi.
    So no mammal. No Flipper.

    I don’t eat big fish. i.e. nothing bigger than 36 inches long – usually much smaller than that.

    I don’t eat grouper and I will avoid catfish.

    No. I try not to eat too much meat and try and keep to free range locally farmed stuff. We’re a bit far from the coast here…

    Besides that, the conservation issues and intelligence, they grow quite old. Old enough to be accumulating mercury and other nasties.

    A bit like Tuna, Marlin, Shark etc

    If mahi mahi IS dolphin. I’ve already ate dolphin. I’ll break the bad news to Mrs aa in the morning.

    This is one of those ‘you learn something new everyday’ moments.

    EDIT. Wiki says its not dolphin, but dolphinfish..

    Really not sure why people really like eating these fish because eating them is like eating some rough dry meat. 😯
