It may not turn out to be much of a “good” Thursday or Friday for fish sales at the Oistins market.Vendors at the popular Berinda Cox Fish Market say it has been the worst season they experienced in a while, with some even suggesting that it wasn’t even a season this year.

They said they could only hope that those coming for their last-minute fish, made significant purchases.
