Dried Fishes

Dried fishes sold in Khlong Toei Market

The dried fishes were lined up on the round trays

Shot at Khlong Toei Market in Bangkok, Thailand.

Along with many butchers, many fish mongers were doing business in this huge market. I came to one of them. Many round strainers were placed in the shop and crammed with cut fishes. They seemed to be dried fishes of Tilapia. Tilapia was one of the major fish in Thailand and called Phra Nin in Thai.

Phra means fish in Thai and it is said Nin derived from the Japanese Emperor, Akihito. In the old days, the emperor offered advice on the food situation. And he presented some 50 Tilapia to this country. So the fish was called Emperor Fish here.
