Seafood is always costlier, particularly lobster and caviar. It is due to the demand and supply. The Lobsters for an instance have habitually been caught in pots of lobsters therefore only, a few are harvested from the sea at a time, and it happens for the rich people or later for the restaurants. The Dublin Bay prawns are called scampi, but the fishmongers usually sell monkfish tails or other fishes in place of scampi, as it is difficult to recognize if it is a fish or a prawn after been cooked for so long. If it tastes awesome, no one is bothered, only a foodie can explain the difference. One should give a thought of how the seafood reaches your plates. Minute fishing industry employees go for fishing in all the weathers, except for the days when the weather is stormy. The fish is then cleaned, refrigerated on board, or simply packed in the ice. Even the simplest procedure requires a lot of hard work. Fishes are simpler to catch in comparison to bi-valves and mollusks, which reside closer to the seabeds or on the rocks. The Squids always tend to move in shoals and it makes them considerable easier to catch, that reflects in price. The Octopuses are even much more tough nuts to crack as they live in crevasses and holes. They also require harpoons at times. You can sit on rocks or harbor walls and catch them with the help of hooks that can tempt them. After you catch some, it is even tougher to tenderize them. Traditionally people used to hit them on the rock several times to tenderize them, at present, just freezing does the job. You pay for the delicious seafood knowing the fact that they require a lot of hard work from finding them to cleaning them.
