Dolphin in Bajan cuisine?

Lambretta76 | Sep 13, 200410:30 AM     11

At the recent West Indian Day Parade (Carnival) in Brooklyn, NYC - which, by the way, is a chowhounds heaven - I notcied something peculiar at one of the Bajan booths. Along with the likes of flying fish, kingfish, billfish (?), and more was a listing for dolphin. Is it legal to sell dolphin meat in the US, and is it really a large part of Bajan cuisine? I had wanted to try the flying fish and coucou from this stand but was a bit put off by the fried Flipper. Can anyone expand on the prevalence of this in Bajan cuisine?
