Just for Fun: Name a Fish That Doesnt Have the Letter a in It

Other

Well it’s that wet here today, I am expecting fish to swim by at any moment!

Can you name a fish that doesn’t include the letter A?

I like monkfish, but it’s quite expensive sunny101. I have a monkfish curry in the freezer that I got from our fishmonger. I’m saving it for when my daughter is able to visit.

I don‘t fancy eel Jasmine111! Maybe cut up and disguised in a curry it may be palatable.

I had several as a child. Won at the fair. They all died very quickly, which was quite traumatic at the time!

gerrykelly25 I wish I hadn’t. I hate cutting them, you can’t keep your knife sharp with them. But the blue ling they are much easier to cut. Tusk is a nitemare also. Very tough fish to cut

heatherduthie is that why you start work so early, to process the fish as soon as the catch comes in? (Aren’t I nosey!)

gerrykelly25 yes. I changed jobs 4 weeks ago. I was paid off from where I worked and got another job but didn’t like it. We were cutting small haddock and whiting which are easy to cut. I left and got this job cutting different fish. It’s a lot harder as some of them are so big. I’ve been filleting fish for 30 years now but this is the hardest job I have ever had. I’m not getting any younger, 😳😳My other half said when you get older your met to slow down a bit and take it easy. I’m doing more hours now and it’s a lot more tiring cutting the big fish and a lot harder on the hands, don’t know how much longer I will be able to do it. My carpal tunnel syndrome is getting worse all the time With repetitive strain on the hands and wrists everyday. I will need to win the lottery so I can retire 🤞
