Carp float bladders

I stumbled across these extraordinary carp float bladders in a market outside Beijing.

They are not a delicacy themselves, but are attached to the roe and the bladders fill with gas as soon as they are pulled from the fish.

The Chinese eat a lot of carp and they are often still alive when sold in supermarkets.
