Unloading the catch of the day

Once the boats are unloaded the frenzy to sell begins.
Buyers wait until the boats are tied together. They then jump into the boats to begin negotiation. It’s such a trip to hear these buyers haggling.
I once saw this woman fill her basket and just as she was about to pay, some words exchanged and the buyer grabbed the basket and unloaded it’s contents back into her live well. It was unbelievable. The poor buyer, who was a very frail and older woman retreated and went to another boat.
