29. 鱼干 (yú gān) - Dried Fish

 

2842722_driedfish2.thumb.jpg.1ecf8e305869edcbf5f453166f5bb385.jpg


As promised, I get to dried fish. As I mentioned upthread, fresh saltwater fish is difficult to find in the interior of China, but for centuries fish has been dried and shipped overland. Here is the selection from one supermarket, yesterday.

 

Note: It is sometimes difficult to know what some fish species here are, even when I have the Chinese name. Names differ from place to place and many species simply don’t have English names. But I think I’ve cracked most of this lot.
