Fish Monger
The fish here made me sad - the presentation doesn't give you the sense that this person really cares about the fish. We aren't anywhere near the ocean so I suspect much of this is freshwater fish.

Octopus Balled Up
This is going to become sushi in some restaurant. Perhaps a little Takoyaki? See an example in a Kyoto Market

Snails
I'm not sure why the shells on these snails are so broken. I'm not sure if these are salt water or fresh or how it's eaten.

Carving Up Tuna
You can see the body is fully of ice - I'm not sure if that means this is fresh fish or frozen, but if it was frozen they would probably be using the band saw.
