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!

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

Scabbard Fish at Parche Supermarket in Shizuoka City!

There seems to be an endless list of names for Tachiuo/太刀魚!
In Japanese it means “big Sword Fish”!

SN3O0200

I’ve always liked the name of Scabbard Fish as it becomes an interesting comparison with the meaning of the Janaese name!

This is the Wikipedia definition which does not things any clearer!
The largehead hairtail (also beltfish), Trichiurus lepturus, is a member of the cutlassfish family, Trichiuridae. It is a long, slender fish found throughout the tropical and temperate waters of the world. The Atlantic and Pacific populations are also known as Atlantic cutlassfish and Pacific cutlassfish, respectively.

Largehead hairtails can grow to over 2 m in length; the largest recorded weight is 5 kg and the oldest recorded age is 15 years. They live in shallow coastal waters, rising to eat planktonic crustaceans during the day and returning to the sea bed at night.

SN3O0201

These were caught in the Suruga Bay off Yui, Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!
They seem a bit pricey at 1,500 yen a piece, but they are the freshest samples you will find anywhere except on boats!
You will find cheaper ones in other markets but they will not be that fresh and will bear many injuries as the skin is very thin and easily broken!
Do not buy fish with broken skin, a sure sign of lack of freshness!

SN3O0203

They certainly not easy to put on display for the reason of their length!

It is a very versatile fish which can be appreciated as sashimi, sushi both raw or aburi/seared!
It is a little beauty as tempura, but you can also cook it grilled or in sauce in all kinds of gastronomy!
