By The Pound

This is Miami. We are surrounded by a BIG ocean and a BIG gulf. It's the Atlantic ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, you know. You'd think we can get all the fish and other edible sea creatures for pennies. Not so! We are starving for sea food and it costs an arm and a leg (if I were a fish, I would say a gill and a fin) to eat fish. It's out of the question to get freshly caught fish unless you come and wait for hours for the deep sea fishing charter boats returning from a fishing expedition. You can buy "not so fresh" fish at exorbitant prices. You don't believe me? Take a look at this billboard. We all know that oysters, clams and such mollusks have HEAVY armors to protect their bodies... and they sell them by the pounds!
