Can "absetzen" be used here?

The Duden definition for absetzen (definition no.9 to be specific) is:

[in größeren Mengen] verkaufen

So it looks like it would imply that a large amount of fish is being discussed, which isn't necessarily the case in the English sentence; so I don't think "absetzen" would work here, but that's just from my research.
