Shouting may finish the Spanish fish (7)


I believe the answer is:


'shouting' is the definition.
(yelling is a kind of shouting)

'may finish the spanish fish' is the wordplay.
'finish' says to take the final letters.
'the spanish' becomes 'el' ('the' in Spanish).
'fish' becomes 'ling' (ling is a kind of fish).
The final letter of 'may' is 'y'.

(Other definitions for yelling that I've seen before include "Uttering loud cries", "Screaming", "Hollering, howling", "Shouting loudly", "Bellowing".)

I've seen this clue in Sydney Morning Herald.
