There are three models for the auction and the stage
of the fish for the auction. They are: random with
auction bidders scrambling to find fish in printout,
by class with bidders finding listing easier from
printout, and in sequence following closely the
printout. What is involved in each method of
operating the auction.

Transport fish to auction from fish room. Fish put
into boxes for transport. Usual number of boxes 10 to
15. Approximately 20 pairs of fish per box.
15 boxes 20 to 30 13 to 15 boxes
No labels 1-20, 21-41 label by class
In random fish are collected in a box until the box is
full and then box transported to auction room. This
is clearly the simplest and easiest for the bagging
process. For auction by class, the fish are already
organized by class, so the box is placed near the
class and bags are put into the box as bagging is
finished. For a sequential (but random) auction, as
fish are bagged and labeled, a runner brings them to
the correct box within the fish room for later
transport. This is the most labor intensive, but
probably reuires an additional person or two in the
bagging and transport process.
Display upcoming fish on overhead. This is common to
all forms of the auction.
The bagging of the fish is the most time consuming
portion of the whole endeavor. It seems that the only
thing that stands in the way we run our auction is
what form we want our auction to follow. What is
easiest for the baggers or what is most convenient for
the attendees of the auction.
