Where do coarse fish on sale in King's Lynn's eastern European supermarkets come from..?
I wonder where all the coarse fish you see on sale in almost all the eastern European supermarkets in King's Lynn are sourced from.
There are dried roach, dried bream, smoked bream and all kinds of other fish on sale with nothing to indicate their origin on some of the packaging.
How anyone could even eat a 4oz roach is beyond me. There can't be much more than scales and bones left by the time you've dried or smoked it.
Ditto bream, like the skimmer above, which could be yours for £1.35 with no use-by date or any information on the packaging (plastic bag) regarding its provenance.
There could obviously be an innocent explanation to all this and a clear and verifiable supply chain to wherever these fish were caught.
This in turn would clearly separate the shops which sell these fish from the illegal netting operations which come on top, from time to time, when gill nets are found strung across drains a few miles from King's Lynn.
