Fish sellers were taking their places next to bakkal
, however unfortunately it is almost impossible to see fish sellers
between the streets of the districts. Now they are located at Çarşı
If you have good relations with the fish seller, it means you are the one who
eats the freshest and delicious fish of Istanbul. When you buy fish from Balıkçı
the gutting and cleaning of the fish by the attendant is included in the price.
However it is customary to tip him (if not the owner of the shop) depending
on the work involved.
You can find various kinds of fish according to season . There is a saying that
fish can only be eaten on the months that have “r” in it, that is January,
February, March, April, September, October, November and December. Due to the
restrictions of fishing during the summer months most of the fish sellers convert
their counters to sell water melon or close them until the end of the restrictions.
Most of the supermarkets have fish departments. Moreover while speaking of fish
Balık Pazarı in Istanbul and Sakarya Çarşısı in Ankara should not be skipped.
Fish: balık, trout: alabalık, red mullet: barbunya for
big ones, tekir for smaller, sole: dil, frech anchovy/sprats:
hamsi, prawn: karides, swordfish: kılıç, sea bass: levrek,
blue fish: lüfer, red sea bream: mercan, salmon: somon
