 Plum tree bloomed, and Lance fishing has started.

 Since the fishing would finish, the flowers would fall before long.

The fishing port is prosperous during about this one month, and ” kugi-ni “ (boiled fishes like nail) is made at each home.

 

梅の花が咲き、イカナゴ漁が始まり、終わると花もやがて散る。

 この1ヶ月間ほど、漁港は賑わい、各家庭では「くぎ煮」が作られる。

 

The kugi-ni are made by boiling the fry of lance together with a lot of soy sauce and sugar.

 these length are from 3 cm to 7.

 Alcohol and ginger are added it, and if it continues boiling until moisture flies completely, it will become amber with gloss.

 It tastes very good, when I eat ” kugi-ni” together the boiled rice.

 The Kama-age is used to add with other dishes.

 

 くぎ煮はイカナゴの稚魚、体長3~7cmを大量の醤油と砂糖で煮て作られる。

お酒と生姜が加えられ、水気が完全に飛ぶまで煮続けると、照りのある飴色になる。

これをご飯に載せて食べると実にうまい。

釜揚げは他の料理に和えて使う。

 

Early morning, a fishing boat came back

< Early morning, a fishing boat came back. >

Lance fishing is two fishing boats pull a big net and sail on the sea.

 And another boat brings back the catches until the harbor in a hurry.

 

イカナゴ漁は2隻の漁船が大きな網を引き、海を駆けめぐる。

そして別の1隻がその収穫物を港に急いで持ち帰る。

 

A ship arrived at the shore and Lance is unloaded from it.

 Landing persons cooperates with fishermen、 and Lance were moved to many containers by them.

Landing persons are women and daughters although fishermen are man and son.

This fishery consist that some family and many people cooperate.

 

船の漁師と埠頭の荷揚げ者が協力して、いくつものコンテナにイカナゴを移す。

漁師達は男や息子であるが、荷揚げ者は婦人や娘達である。家族、皆が協力しての漁である。

 Auction will start soon

< Auction will start soon. >

 Some brokers are moving to a front ship from over there.

 One broker appraises by putting his hand inside a container of Lance.

The auction will start soon.

 The ship that finished landing immediately departs again.

 

奥の船で競りが終わった仲買人達は手前の船に移動して来る。

一人の仲買人がイカナゴのコンテナに手を入れ、品定めをする。

やがて競りが始まる。

荷揚げを終えた船は、またすぐ出港する。

 Sea gulls are gathering gradually to target the fish that fall at landing.

 

荷揚げでこぼれる魚を狙って、カモメが徐々に集まってくる。

  1. aquacompassさん今晩は、難しい釘煮も御自分で作られると云う事で感心しています。イカナゴ漁の漁法もセリや、漁港での作業まで詳しく知る事が出来ました。有難うございました。
    明日から少し寒さが戻ってきますが桜が楽しみですね!

    • はい! 3月末に、京都に桜見物を考えています。
      またそれでブログを書くつもりです。
      お元気で!

  2. I think when one lives by the sea, they learn to reap and benefit from what it has to offer. I have been inland for too long and only enjoy certain kinds of fish. But your dishes look interesting. I hope you enjoyed them.

  3. Since I have lived near the sea, I became to think benefit from the sea certainly. I feel a life of animals (bird and fish) than before. But in the mountain or field, there is much beauty of flower than sea.
