I am  not a good cleaner for fish.
:)

esp. my partner doesn't eat fish unless there is no bone.



That's why you get the fishmonger to do it WHEN you buy the fish, bone and fillet it.

It depends
Did the supermarket say 850 gr fish for 34 yuans?=cheating the costumer
Did the supermarket say per piece?=not cheating



I do not think  a supermarket is going to announce its prices saying the ice is included in the price

all supermarkets tag their prices for the product only

its cheating

when i am in China i visit Carrefour and Century Mart and i saw a lot of frozen sea food in bulk,, hard like a rock, even the small shrimp are frozen

definitely the customer is paying for the ice and that's not fair

I can understand why you felt cheated.

The supermarket is following the gweilo's standard of commercialisation (i.e. cheating by the Chinese standards).

Of course, you have to pay for the ICE as well, part and parcel of the packaging !


If you bought a frozen fish and the supermart says' fresh product", the error is SURELY English !


Trust me, I am correct .............. !

Nope, not at all although I know you like to always think we're wrong but in your hatred, it's you who's wrong. Fresh fish is a day old or less. Otherwise, standard practice is to advertise the catch date. You know this but choose to tear down bridges and destroy harmony we're trying to build here, begone witch! ( no, I don't mean the word with a "b" at the beginning!)
P.S; I saw online recently, a HK story where wet market vendors routinely altered their scales to overcharge and guess what, none of the vendors were gweilo! bet you'll blame it on us though since it was a colony for a few years.
