Maritime Creatures in Akkeshi Bay!

by Kazu

Two kinds of gigantic oysters were displayed in the showcase of the Aikappu Museum in Akkeshi Town.
How old do you think they are ?
Approximately twenty five years could be counted on the shells' line.  
Barbed hunchback poacher is called Atsumori-uo in
Japan. Dog poacher is called "Inu-gochi" in Japanese.
A  baby swordfish was also displayed in the museum. It was the first time for me to see such small swordfish. "Are you tired,ladies ?"
