Stockfish business is very lucrative just like crayfish and Prawn business. Many people use stockfish to prepare soup and some still go ahead to use them for pottage. In fact the number of people who prefer stockfish to meat is increasing daily because to them stockfish does not contain fat. I noticed something while growing up, almost all the people doing stockfish business in whatever form were all doing fine. One of my classmate was seen as a child from a very wealthy home which was not far from the truth because of her mother’s stockfish business.
