Fish id Mediterranian fishes

Recommended Posts

I am not sure about these imported fishes and molluscs mostly from the Mediterranian area, and the ones I think I have got could probably be more specific:

 

 

 

the-cold-counter-at-the-fishmongers-stal

I think I have got redfish and snapper.

 

 

 

 

 

the-cold-counter-at-the-fishmongers-stal

 

I think I have got langoustine, lobster, crab, scallop, and octopus.

 

 

Any help identifying further would be much appreciated, thanks.

The two darker ones at the bottom left and the three silver ones on top of them with the golden stripes in the forehead are, according to wikipedia, the Sparus Aurata. And they have as common name in English: Gilt-Head Sea Bream.

 

In the wikipedia page there are the common names for them in several countries. You may want to include some of those in the keywords. I don't know about other countries but in Portugal it's a very appreciated fish, and it's called Dourada.

Second image - tiger prawns in there and I think I can see a couple of flatfish - possibly brill or dover sole - and some gurnard at the top.
