Fish & Seafood


Magicians of Gor, page 428


Three other men of the Forkbeard attended to fishing, two with a net, sweeping it along the side of the serpent, for parsit fish,
and the third, near the stem, with a hook and line, baited with vulo liver, for the white-bellied grunt, a large game fish which
haunts the plankton banks to feed on parsit fish.

White Grunt Eggs

Before each guests there were tiny slices of tospit and larma, small pastries, and in a tiny golden cup, with a small golden spoon,
the clustered, black, tiny eggs of the white grunt. Fighting Slave of Gor, page 27


Other girls had prepared the repast, which, for the war camp, was sumptuous indeed, containing even oysters from the delta of
the Vosk, a portion of the plunder of a tarn caravan of Ar, such delicacies having been intended for the very table of Marlenus,
the Ubar of that great city itself. Captive of Gor, page 301

Tambur Golf Oysters

Oysters that are served raw or baked, located in the Tambur Golf

Parsit Fish

The Parsit current is the main eastward current above the polar basin. It is called the parsit current for it is followed by several
varieties of migrating parsit, a small, narrow, usually striped fish. Beasts of Gor, page 38


Once the Forkbeard went to her and taught her to check the scoop, with her left hand, for snails, that they not be thrown
overboard. Returning to threw the shell fragments overboard.
me he held one of the snails, whose shell he crushed between his fingers, and sucked out the animal, chewing and swallowing it.
He then "They are edible," he said. "And we use them for fish bait." Marauders of Gor


"They are probably false stones," I said, "amber droplets, the pearls of the Vosk sorp, the polished shell of the Tambur clam,
glass colored and cut in Ar for trade with ignorant southern peoples. Nomads of Gor, page 20


The blue, four-spine wing fish is found only in the waters of Cos. Larger varieties are found farther out to sea. The small blue fish
is regarded as a great delicacy, and its liver as the delicacy of delicacies. Nomads of Gor, page 85

White Shark

In this punishment, the girl, clothed or unclothed, is bound tightly on an oar, hands behind her, her head down, toward the
blade. When the oar lifts from the water she gasps for breath, only in another moment to be submerged again. A recalcitrant girl
may be kept on the oar for hours. There is also, however, some danger in this, for sea sleen and the white sharks of the north
occasionally attempt to tear such a girl from the oar. When food is low it is not unknown for the men of Torvaldsland to use a
bond-maid, if one is available on the ship, for bait in such a manner. The least pleasing girl is always used. Marauders of Gor,
page 66



The Wagon Peoples grow no food, nor do they have manufacturing as we know it. They are herders and it is said, killers. They
eat nothing that has touched dirt. They live on the meat and milk of the bosk. Nomads of Gor, page 4


"Perhaps," suggested Gorm, "it is diseased or injured, and can no longer hunt the swift deer of the north?"

Kailiauk or Pte

Even past me there thundered a lumbering herd of startled, short-bunked kailiauk, a stocky, awkward ruminant of the plains,
tawny, wild, heavy, their haunches marked in red and brown bars, their wide heads bristling with a trident of horns; they had not
stood and formed their circle, shes and young within the circle of tridents; they, too, had fled; Nomads of Gor, page 2

Tabuk the same case but in a different corner was a small herd, no more than five adult animals, a proud male and four does, of
tabuk, the single-horned, golden Gorean antelope. Priest-Kings of Gor, page 191


I thought of the yellow Gorean bread, baked in the shape of round, flat loaves, fresh and hot; my mouth watered for a tabuk
steak or, perhaps, if I were lucky, a slice of roast tarsk, the formidable six-tusked wild boar of Gor's temperate forests. Outlaw of
Gor, page 76

I gathered that the best season for hunting tumits, the large, flightless carnivorous birds of the southern plains, was at hand, for
Kamchak, Harold, and others seemed to be looking forward to it with great eagerness.  Nomads of Gor, page 2


The verr was a mountain goat indigenous to the Voltai. It was a wild, agile, ill-tempered beast, long-haired and spiral-horn.

She had been carrying a wicker basket containing vulos, domesticated pigeons raised for eggs and meat.  Nomads of Gor, page 1
