Man Cutting Fishes One After Another

Many cut fishes were scattered in front of the man working under the parasol

Many umbrellas were open on the passage in Khlong Toei Market. And an enormous number of fishes was displayed under them. The place where I walked around was crammed with fishmongers.

Finding a small kitchen, I approached it. A table was placed beside the trays which the fishes for sale were displayed on. And two men were working busily. Many fishes were scattered on the table. One man was just cutting fishes and the other was removing the scale. After they finish this procedure, they set out in the storefront.

Japanese consume about 150g of marine products a day. The amount becomes one of the top ten in the world. Various kinds of fish were sold in this Khlong Toei Market. So I thought the consumption of marine products in Thailand was also high. Yet it was not true. It failed to make the top-25 list.
