Very Happy   Fabulous.

They look a bit different from British pots. Tried zooming in on the picture Suspect  but could not get much detail.

If you are able, perhaps a closeup shot?

"Pot shot of the month" Very Happy

Those big pots look a bit unusual. Any idea what they are after? Spider crabs perhaps?

I am guessing the "churns" on the left would be for octopus.

Well spotted 🔍
Could be octopuss, it's on a lot of menus round here and all say it's locally caught 🐙

A bit off topic but there is some debate over the most appropriate plural for more than one octopus, with octopuses, octopi, octopodes, octopods amongst some of the contenders.

With assistance of google translate, it would appear that  the Portuguese word for an octopus is "polvo", with a simpler single choice of plural of "polvos". Much more efficient these Europeans.

Again with assistance of google, the Welsh word for octopuses is "octopysau", which does not sound too appetising at all. May be best to play safe and have chicken & chips.  Wink

Well I did go into a Chinese restaurant last night and had the squid which wasn't the best so I called the waiter over and said "This squid is rubbery !" To which he replied "Oh fanku very much !" cheers

Those big traps are similar to ones used here for crayfish, or even larger ones for blue cod down south.

Thanks Rhod. Hopefully Logger can confirm if there is lots of lagosta (lobster) or lagostim (crayfish) on the menu. Pots definitely too big for camarao (prawns).

Chicken in a basket would seem appropriate
