#117 Fish for Tea

Our fishing industry has just started after an enforced month long break - for biological reasons!

At about 5 o'clock the fishing boats come in, unload their catch, which they have sorted into trays while still at sea. The trays go on a conveyor belt and the buyers have a dutch auction (they wait as the price goes down).

Here are some 'unsworded' swordfish. You can just about read that they have come off the boat called L'Andrago, the fish is/are identified as Emperador and have been sold to a Benidorm fish merchant.

You can buy the just-landed fish from one of a dozen or so fish mongers next to the auction house. Then the fishermen have a fag, mend their nets, and do it all again the next day.
