Man with Fish head 17

Today large fish are primarily for sale on the commercial market. A fishmonger would arrive from town to purchase the fish and take them to the various urban markets in town. This individual also owns the ice house and the diesel fuel depot in the village; thus, this fishmonger owns many of the important materials used for the local fishing economy. Many of the local fisherfolk would become indebted to this person during the lean fishing in the winter time frame; thus, during the important summer monsoon fishing season, this fishmonger could state the price he would buy the fish because the fishermen are indebted to him.
