Fresh Fish For Sale

Alaskan Sockeye Salmon:
$7.99 a pound!
This is the place where the workers throw the fish.
These are just some of the medium size specimens for sale here. Other counters feature creatures large enough to feed a fair-size crowd. And when one is sold one man from the store tosses it to the cashier for weighing, packaging, and collecting payment.
Men in the background below receive the flying fish. We gathered with cameras at ready hoping for an action shot or two, but nobody was buying the big fish at that time.
