The recent typhoons and changeable weather of late had allowed me to look at the local fish available at Parche Fish Market inside Shizuoka JR Station but yesterday I finally could have a peek!
Now, what are these big fish?
Less than 6 US $ apiece! Now, this is cheap by Japanese standards! caught off Atami City!
Shiira/シイラ/Mahi mahi or dorado/dolphinfish!
And what about these big, long silver fish?
At 23 US $, not so cheap, but they are big and super fresh! Caught off Yui, Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!
So fresh! This is a fish which tends to spoil off quickly!
What are these big flat fish on top?
At more than 3.50 US $ per 100 grams, not cheap!
Top-class flounder in Japan!
Kohada/コハダ/Dotted gizzard shad!
A sushi chef’s favorite!
Unusual in Shizuoka!
Kose/コセ/A variety of Stripped jack!
Takabe/たかべ/Yellowstriped Butterfish from Shimoda harbor!
Oaka Aji/尾赤あじ:Red tail horse mackerel!
