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!


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


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


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!


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


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


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


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


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


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

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