Fromn this web hit, I'd guess it describes their species or
provenance rather than their preparation.
(Emphasis added.)
slice of raw fish wrapped around Japanese rice Nishiki
(prawn, salmon, tuna, halibut, squid, salmon roe, *St. Jacob's scallops*)
4 types according to individual selection

plate of pieces of raw fish served according to a traditional Japanese recipe
(salmon, tuna, halibut, squid, octopus, salmon roe, *St. Jacob's scallops*)
possible to adapt according to individual selection

Or, from a review of a Warsaw restaurant:
Let's begin with appetizers like tuna tartar with fresh tomatoes
(zl.25), *St. Jacob's mussels* (zl.25), or a venison and red cabbage
salad (zl.35).

>MUSALE/NOAH'S ARK--Another dish.  Noah's ingredients are not explained.

Two of everything, I'd guess.  For when you're really hungry.
