In transite siem reap to Sihanoukville, Cambodia

We have a 10 hour bus ride today that will get is from siem reap to the south of Cambodia where the beaches are supposed to rival that of Thailand.
Yesterday at market, a guy on a motorcycle dropped off this large baket in front of a row of 8 fish vendors. Inside of this large basket, big enough to fit a child comfortably, where full of fresh caught fish. The fish were about the size of sardines and the vendors devended upon it with such a frenzy that the basket was empty in less than 5 minutes.

What I am curious about is how does the payment system work? The guy drops off the fish, each vendor grabs what they can and then what? How do they know who got how much and how much do they owe the guy for the fish?
