At a fish market in the metropolitan area, it was claimed that안전놀이터 customers were overcharged by the so-called ‘ice hitting’ method, which is to fill the belly of king crab with ice and weigh it.
On the 25th, on the YouTube channel ‘Memories of Biting’, run by fish columnist Kim Ji-min, an informant told the story of an informant who visited a fish market in the metropolitan area and said that he seemed to have been ‘hit the scale’.
Mr. A, who reported the story, said, “I ordered (king crab) via text message, but he put a full amount of ice on the stomach and weighed it. I’m curious if this is also a scale, so I’m contacting you,” he posted a picture.
‘Scaling’ refers to a method in which a fish market merchant cheats on the weight of a basket containing raw fish purchased by a customer or presses the scale so that it is not visible.
Looking at the picture, the weight of the king crab on the scale was 2.035 kg. The price per 1kg was 65,000 won, and the total came out at 132,300 won.
Mr. Kim said, “Look at the size of the king crab now. If you are a king crab seller, you will know that this never comes out 2kg. It’s very small,” he said. “Let’s take a look at the belly button. He pointed out that the stomach was filled with ice.”
He continued, “This photo was sent to Mr. A by a merchant saying, ‘We measured it this way. I don’t think I was aware of how serious this was.”
Mr. Kim said, “This is not weighing. It’s not even madness, it’s a new type of ice hitting. “Sell it honestly and conscientiously. Because of the merchant who sells like this, other merchants are also criticized.”
