Yesterday morning when I went to the wet market, I took note of all varieties of fish available. At the talipapa on V. Mapa Street in Santa Mesa, Rosalie de la Cruz showed me tambacol, alumahan, sapsap, tilapia, tulingan, bisugo, bangus, dalagang bukid, tamban, salay, baby lapu-lapu, betilla, danggit, talakitok, maya-maya, tanigue, tuna, dulong, dilis, galungong plus alamang, shrimps, squid, octopus, clams, mussels and even seaweeds. Rosalie said that these are the fish varieties that working people normally buy, particularly tilapia, bangus, galungong and squid. People buy shrimps in small quantities to be used as flavoring for their stir-fry recipes.
