All along the coasts of the Old World, fishermen harvest their catch from the sea. Generally only available in coastal regions, or places with nearby lakes or rivers, fresh fish is a commodity that lasts through the morning. Afterwards, as the fish start to turn, the peasants make their rounds. Finally, after the peasants have had their chance to buy, fish mongers throw the bad fish to beggars and city scum for free.[1a]

Pickled Fish

For long treks, nothing says breakfast, lunch, and dinner like a big barrel of pickled fish. Full of briny goodness, pickled fish are quite popular among the low classes. These barrels hold enough fish to feed a person for two weeks; although, reaching the bottom of the barrel is a feat in itself.[1a]
