Cam went out fishing today with a friend and caught 3 Halibut, 2 Salmon and 1 Coho Salmon. This was a really neat learning experience for all of us. (Sorry to all my vegan readers!) He ate a fillet of the Coho with supper tonight and the rest is headed for the freezer.
We saw a lot of fish parts up close. Gills and roe:
In this female Coho you can see top to bottom: roe, swim bladder, liver, pyloric caeca which absorbs nutrients into the blood. It is similar to small intestine. You can also see the spleen on the upper right of the picture.
Halibut are creepy looking things. These fish are bottom feeders which explains why their eyes are on the same side of their face. They look so lopsided and sideways looking!
Even Oscar got to have a taste of the catch. Not a bad early supper.
You may notice that I’ve joined Flickr and now have a badge on my sidebar that will take you to more of my pictures if your interested! I’m still finding my way around and am trying to figure out how to size all these properly…. these don’t exactly fit at the moment….
