The packing table has been pulled out and dismantled, and this dumping bin is the next to go. A crew member told me yesterday that they will be ceasing operations on the state fish pier because there just wasn’t enough money in it.
Here you see the boys dismantling the slime eel packing table that was operating on the state fish pier. When I asked why they were shutting it down they told me it just wasn’t paying. It wasn’t for a lack of trying. A huge amount of effort was put forth to try to make a go of it.
At least I got to document it while it was operating. I know, I know, you all will be supremely disappointed that there will be no more slime eel pictures on these pages.
Note how the slime gets separated from the slime eels and then the gets pushed down the table through those little square openings into the vats.
You couldn’t pay me enough.
It’s bad enough to get squished by a truck but then you gotta lay around dead surrounded by a bunch of slime eels? Damn son, that’s gotta suck.
They are taking measurements to establish a baseline for future growth or average lengths of the catch from year to year.
