Seabreams at Parche market in Shizuoka City!

Yesterday I noticed some new interesting arrivals at the Fish Counter of the Parche Supermarket inside the JR Shizuoka Station!
Among them was a quite extraordinary catch of different seabreams!

SN3O0185

they were all displayed in big boxes filled with ice!
Let’s have a look at them:

SN3O0177

Onagadai/尾長鯛/also called “hamdai/浜鯛, “Long tail seabream” or Longtailed red snapper/Onaga!

SN3O0178

Although abundant in Shizuoka prefecture, seabreams are not cheap.
1,000 yen for on fish! Great as sashimi!
These were caught in the Ogaswara Archipelago, a group of islnads technically not part of Shizuoka as they are administered by Tokyo City, but geographically integral aprt of Shizuoka and izu Peninsula whose fishermen especially bring to Numazu harbor!

SN3O0179

A first-class fish in japan: Amadai/甘鯛/Tilefish!

SN3O0180

Caught near Yaizu, an extravagant fish at 3,240 yen a fish!

SN3O0181

Another extravagant fish: Akoudai/アコウ鯛/Rose fish!

SN3O0182

Caught of Omaezaki, very expensive at 3,980 yen a fish!

SN3O0183

A less expensive but still succulent fish: Himedai/姫鯛/”Princess seabream”, crimson snapper!

SN3O0184

Also caught off Ogasawara Archipelago. 1,580 yen a fish!

You can imagine what you are going to pay for them at a restuarant!
