That's a pretty neat shop, the chalkboard is a clever idea. They look very busy.

Wonderful to see all that fresh fish .... I'll have some beautiful whiting fillets s'il vous plaît. Merci.

Interesting photo.

We had dinner tonight with friends. The conversation included a discussion about how infrequently we have really good swordfish these days. Most seems too thin, frozen and dry. These look great. Send some over!

A nice thing to have in the neighborhood. I can only think of one or two fishmonger in our area. You have probably been to Pike Place Market in Seattle - I love to watch the staff hurling whole salmon through the air.

Looks like a smelly place. Happy Friday.

@ all: if it smelled bad, this place would be out of business, lol!

La sole à 19 E et la daurade à 8 : des prix raisonnables. C'est souvent plus cher ici.

There is nothing quite like fresh seafood! It only waits for the magic of a chef to do his/her work. Yes, I did get your email. Sorry to hear of the stalking. I hope it does not continue! Too much stress in life already. I hope you have a wonderful weekend :^)

Although I don't really like to eat fish much, I love looking at the fishmongers. They are such odd looking creatures.

I love fish. And would be happy in this place.

This one deserves being enlarged, it's a great shot, Ciel.

Yum! I love fish, so much more than meat! Great name for a fishmonger's shop Ciel.

Looks to me like the French know how to sell fish - FRESH!

@ EG: not all of them!

@ Andrew: I couldn't agree more...
