Default Live Blackfish in supermarket

I was in a korean supermarket and there was a tank 2x3 ft 20 - 24 inches deep and there were 5 or 6 4-5 lb blackfish in there . I as all of us here have killed many fish but seeing that bothered me . Blacks are slow growing long lived fish , it just seemed unnesscary to me one can say the same for lobsters but this seemed different .

What's the problem? They aren't dying until it's dinner time. No foul-hooked fish, no juveniles, no unsold spoiled fish to discard. I say it's a good thing.

Eh, Lee-lee market here has live tilapia and catfish, sometimes other species, too. A lot of cultures want their fish live when they buy it. You can pick one out of the tank and they kill it and clean it right there for you.

May seem odd to us, but quite the norm in many Asian countries.

I know on the Ms gulf coast the Triple Tail is commonly referred to as "blackfish".

You think that is bad (OP), spend a few minutes in a chicken factory.

My old landlord here in WI used to net carp commercially here, keep them alive in holding ponds until he had enough, and then ship them to NY by rail tanker cars. 2 things killed his business, a RR strike that left a couple of cars sitting in Chicago for over 2 weeks and the DNR undercut his prices using state labor.

Kosher Fish: Carp - Jewish Recipes

Carp were introduced to England from western Europe during the 13th century, when they were cultivated mainly by monks. They were subsequently introduced into North America to great fanfare as "the world's finest fish" in 1877. The original shipment of 345 live fish were released in ponds in Druid Hill Park in Baltimore, Maryland. Later, surplus populations were released in Babcock Lakes in Monument Park in Washington D.C.. This was a project of Rudolf Hessel, a fish culturist in the employ of the United States Government. There was substantial favorable publicity and carp were widely introduced throughout the United States. Introduced Carp readily adapted to their new environment.

I sat down to eat with some Chinese clients several years ago and a big fish arrived at the table. It was clearly a carp (I grew up catching them). So I said, what kind of a fish is this? They hesitated and then said it was a sea bass. I looked at them and said no it isn't, its a carp. It was darn good too.

Those guys get busted here(Indian River Inlet De.) quite often. Get a slap on the wrist, cheap fine, etc. They will catch an under size fish, take it immediately to their vehicle which will have a live tank. Most other fisherman are on to this now and will call DNR when they see it happen.

That's what I was thinking at first. We have a tournament every year just to catch em and get them out of our creeks. Plus, its fun to catch them w/ friends, drinking and having a good time.
