these last past weeks have witnessed extreme heats and it must be reaaly tough work for fishermen to go at sea even at night!
Yesterday I visited Parch Market in JR Shizuoka Station to find out what was available as local fish and seafood!
Beautiful red fish over there!
A local delicacy with a great name!
Not cheap for a medium-sized fish!
They had been brought in the morning from Kogawa harbor in Yaizu City!
there still some beautiful fish left in the “mixed batch”, too!
Kinmedai/金目鯛/splendid alfonsino (above) and Hobou/方々/red robins 8below)!
Small but expensive Kuchimidai/口美鯛/haarder, redlip mullet-Liza haematocheila (Temminck and Schlegel)!
A local expensive grouper also going by the name of “Menada/目奈陀・目魚”!
Other names I will have to add to the lexicon!
Usumebaru/薄目張 (also called Okimebara/沖目張): sebastes Thompson (Jordan and Hubbs): a variety of Japanese sea perch, Japanese rock fish.
Ko Aji/子鯵: very young horse mackerel (also called Mame aji/豆鯵)!
Kuromutsu/黒鱫、黒鯥: Black gnomefish from Ito City!
Kisu /鱚、鼠頭魚: sand boarer!
Kuro shitabirame/黒舌平目: Black Sole!
Looking forward to my next visit!
