No 643 Steinbach Nutcracker Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman’s Wharf 

Whether it’s Hamburg’s famous (some say infamous) fishmarket district, or San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, both of these places have always held a special fascination for me and I love to go there whenever I can. The pungent fragrance of the “fruits of the sea can be smelled already from far away. 

Just about every known variety of fish can be purchased there: from great big haddock to red salmon, green herring, delicious eels and everything in between! In San Francisco, giant “King Crabs” are the specialty, and they’re pulled out of great steaming kettles right there before your eyes. 

Next to hunting, fishing constitutes the oldest food industry in mankind’s quest for provisions. The rapid increase in the world’s population has led to a dramatic growth in the ocean fishing industry. This in turn has caused many a dispute over territorial fishing rights in the rich fishing grounds such as the Dogger Bank in the North Sea and along both the East & West Coasts of Canada. Half of the entire world’s fish catch is consumed in Asia, whereas we here in Europe consume about one fourth. That’s probably the result of traditional holidays and of course Fridays, when devout people, as well as the not so devout, customarily eat fish. 

So good people, let our gallant little fisherman treat you to the sea’s bounty.
