Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. In whaling, that part of a whale's flesh in which the fat and the lean are so intimately mixed that it is difficult to separate the former from the latter; also, pieces of flesh which adhere to the blubber when the latter is cut off. Most of the fat-lean lies about the jaw, but it is also found in other parts of the animal. It was formerly thrown away, but is now usually saved and tried out.
