Fish Market in Puerto Lopez May 18, 2014
Fish Market in Puerto Lopez is the best one I have seen in the long time. Everything happens on the beach in the front of few shacks where ladies are making food and cutting fresh fish to feed hoards of fishermen and locals. It is just the perfect place to eat super fresh incredible tasty fish. Long boats are constantly hitting the beach with loads of fish and fishermen. Some of them make few rounds to the larger boats where fish are sorted and placed in boxes. Variety of the see life is great, with all kind of small and big fish, numbers of different kinds of sharks (they use whole shark, not only parts like in Asia), rays, octopus… People working there are very friendly but do not stop in the front of them and block their way while they are working. Large cooler trucks are standing on the side of the market and buyers are constantly filling them up with crates or carcasses of large fish. Every day there are activists overlooking the market, counting larger species that are caught and making sure that endangered species are not part of the business. They also educate fisherman on the seasonal rules and changes in the fishing allowances.
