Frantic but interesting. Plenty of fish in both species and number. The action is incomprehensible but has to be seen to be believed

Not the largest fish market but it's worth a look if you happen to be passing by....you can visit the fruit and veg market on the other side of the road as well. The market is clean and it's interesting to see how it operates.

Standard fish market over seas! Giant fish, biggest tuna you've ever seen; guts eveywhere and a fishy smell! Entertaining to see if you're in Male city.
