643 Steinbach Nutcracker 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.
