|When WVU-V! first began (1998), the fish auction was done by voice. The auctioneer would "cry" the highest price and sing to make it higher. The auction is still called the "criée", but now computers and remote controls do all the singing. Buyers keep their remotes discretely hidden so that no rival can see who or when some one outbids the latest offer.|
