Buying Fresh fish in Picton.
It is illegal for the fishermen to sell their catch off their boats to the general public, they must sell to the Fisheries so it can all be counted against their Quotas, but This Lady fisherman is different, she has applied for and got a special liscence to allow her to sell from her own boat to anyone. We are amoung her good customers, from our house we can see when her ship leaves port and when it returns so we are always there to buy fish for our dinners..
Caroline not only catches and sells the fish she also fillets it while you wait. The fish is stored in the pale blue bin, you can choose your own fish from there. She usually has many different species to choose from at all different prices, but none of them too expensive. Butterfish is one of the more expensive because it lives among the kelp and rocks so is more dangerous to catch. It has green bones which is quite interesting and pretty.
Here she is weighing our fish, there is a red Parrot fish, 2 Kelpies and a bigger Butterfish., we dined well for several days from this catch.
