32 fish kanji... How many can you read? Restaurant Kanji 1

Fish, fish, lots of fish...

I found this cloth with fish kanji...

So we have 32 characters here all with the same radical 魚 (fish.)

Some of these characters even most Japanese won`t know as they are usually written in kana, such as octopus, but some you will see in restaurants and sushi shops...

As a kanji 魚 is read さかな (sakana) (other readings include ギョ、うお and ~ざかな) gyo, uo, zakana,
and as a radical it is called うお (uo)

Then we have another part of the character on the other side so everything will be something fish.

So from left to right and top to bottom:

鮗 winter fish このしろ (konoshiro) konoshiro gizzard shad (type of sardine)

鯏 profit fish あさり (asari) Manila Clam (also written 浅利)
