Dolphins aplenty!

DOLPHINS came in aplenty at the Bridgetown Fisheries Complex this week, causing vendors to “sell them off cheap.” This supply was indeed timely as it coincides with Barbadians’ tradition of buying fish to stock up for the Easter Season. Some vendors in the Princess Alice market sold the dolphin fish as low as $4 a pound. But when the DAILY NATION visited the market yesterday, most of them could be heard competing with each other’s voices as they shouted different tunes and appeals to get customers passing through the market to “come buy some fish now”.
