Korean People Eat Aquarium Fish

Korean People Eat Aquarium Fish
While I was in Korea, I noticed many Fish Tanks; in a way, stopping and looking at the Fish they eat were some of the best Aquariums I have ever seen.

Here are a couple of the more exotic looking seafood’s they was selling in South Korea.

Is this a squid or an octopus, or something else?

A person could walk by on the alleys or streets see all the seafood the restaurant sold and I assume go in and eat it.

Worms for sale, this truly was not my idea of lunch, I am not sure, maybe it is an Eel.

Truly not easy to extract any clear information from owners of Korean Restaurants, these are not tourist grade restaurants, and for sure, a tourist restaurant is the last place on my list of places to visit in any country on the planet.

Hmmm, pay a lot of money to see culture that has been changed to suck up to tourist, maybe next lifetime.

Man, you really need to watch some Tony Bourdain. Tony travels worldwide and always eats at local restaurants. He has some amazing meals and experiences.

BTW, there is another clown who does the same thing but specializes in obscure, gross food. I consider him to be the chicken head eating geek of the food world.

The octopus and eel make delicious meals BTW. Just don't eat the Octopus alive.

Never seen anything sold alive in a restaurant other than lobster I guess it makes sense though.

Hey Andy,
Those eels are Hagfish. They live in moderate to deep oceans, at the bottom, and eat anything dead. Kind of like big deepsea maggots.

When I was in ROK, back in 1986, they were selling silkworms as food on the street. Still doing that? Also one of my Army buddies tried Korean dog soup, said it was sweet. I am told they stopped eating earthworms when Americans began travelling there. Too bad, it's probably good food, our Ancestors thrived on it...
