First post so be gentle. I attempted to use the search function to find my answer, but wasn't successful. To give you a little background, we've been in discussion with a couple of circumnavigators that recommended fishing
for the majority of your food
The one thing that struck us the most is that (according to them) you can trade fish
for dry goods and other types of meat while in port. Is this a generally accepted practice? Is there any reference as to where this trade
is practiced, and where it is considered bad taste? How does one put a value on his wares for trade? Do you stroll into the local market and proclaim "fish on ice, caught today, need chicken, beef, rice and beer"?
If someone could walk me through their process of trading fish
for other edibles, I would appreciate it.
