A man carries a large slice of blubber home after helping to slaughter a pilot whale at the Seaman's Day Celebration in Klaksvík on August 21, 2010.  After a kill, the meat and blubber of the pilot whales is divided up between everyone in the community.  Although whale once made up a large part of the Faroese diet, growing concerns over mercury levels and changing cultural tastes means that people are consuming significantly less of it today.
