Friendly Friday Challenge: something fishy

The Friendly Friday Challenge is now a fortnightly challenge co-hosted by Amanda from Something to Ponder About and Sandy from The Sandy Chronicles. 

For the next two weeks, the Friendly Friday Blog Challenge is asking us to share a story, photographs, poem or recipe on the theme: Something Fishy.

Fish have always loomed large in my life. My father was a fish wholesaler and consequently could identify a good piece of fish at 20 paces. Any holiday would always involve a trip to the local fish market with my father pointing out what to look for to ensure you were buying the freshest fish and seafood. Lessons I have never forgotten.

Obviously we ate fish regularly at home and I still have nightmares about when I was served fish fingers for lunch at a friend’s house. Apart from making the obvious coment about fish not having fingers, I was at a loss to understand how these woolly day-glo orange sticks were considered fish.

Understandably, I am very picky about the fish I eat. It has to be sustainable. I love having conversations with my local fishmonger about the provenance of his offering and on more than one occasion he’s complimented me on my knowledge – praise indeed. As an occasional fish-eating vegan, I choose where I eat fish with care. There’s surely nothing worse than overcooked fish.

So, here’s my selection for something fishy!


This year the girls are are opening up the challenge, making its focus not purely on photography but making it a little more varied, a little more open and interesting.

  1. I take their point about no fish being truly sustainable, but it is an industry and people must eat so we have to ensure that we take less than what the fish population can sustain. In that way, the species can survive.
    You have some great photos here, Sheree and I suspect I know where the final one is located. It looks very familiar. Am I right?

  2. Great photos Sheree! I must admit, I’m not a fish lover at all, it’s the texture, not the taste that is bad for me. We did eat a lot of fish at home when I was growing up, I ate it but never enjoyed it. Yes, I’m strange!😂😹
