International Boston Seafood Show: Fish Fun & Photos

Fish is held out to be one of the greatest luxuries of the table and not only necessary, but even indispensable at all dinners where there is any pretence of excellence or fashion.
--Isabella Beeton

While I was at the 2013 International Boston Seafood Show (IBSS), I took plenty of photos of interesting items, from fish heads to stuffed bears. Many of these pictures did not easily lend themselves to a full post so I chose to collect them here for your viewing pleasure. Have fun!

A badass Fishy Biker!

The Chicken of the Sea Mermaid. A seafood you were not allowed to sample. Look but do not touch.

An old time fish truck. Maybe we need to bring back these to deliver local fish.

Gator burgers, anyone?

A huge scary Polar Bear. Those eyes really do it!

The poor Panda is getting too heavy to climb the bamboo any more.

A can with claws? Will you be eating the crab or will it eat you?

Cats & fish. I bet they become fast friends.

Capt'n Catfish. How would you like him to be prepared?

No one will ever find me hiding in here. And if they do, they will lose their hand when they reach into grab me,

What kind of pickles would sea cucumbers make?

Blah, blah, blah. Stop talking about yourself.

These phallic looking creatures are Geoducks, pronounced "gooey ducks."

How the hell do I get the pearl out of this oyster?

Beauty is skin deep, but ugliness goes down to the bone.

Gimme a big, wet one baby!

What is a better house pet, a catfish or a dogfish?

Raise your claw if you love crab!

And the middle fish wins the race by a nose...and a lip.

Moonfish. Sunfish. C'mon, I can't be both at the same time.

Pure butter-covered lobster heaven

These are my lemon slices. Touch them and lose a finger.

The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.”

That geoduck clam reminds me of the this recipe where it was sauteed and simmered in coconut milk, chilis, and pepper.
