Sort of looks like the party game where you tape a famous person name to the forehead of each guest and then they have to guess who they are by asking other guest questions about themselves. But then there is lots of alcohol and less of a fishy smell at these parties.

I've been to a fish auction. It's really fun watching the men haggle for the fish.

Cool photo! I hear Japan has one of the most active fish market in the world.

I imagine those tags on their heads are their bidding cards so the autioneer can mark down whose made the winning bids.

At antique auctions in the UK bidders hold their cards -- this is just a variation on the theme.

good photo
