Not only we could buy any seafood or fish you want there, they do have all seafood and fiah alive; that is a good way of garanteeing freshness. Astonishingly clean for a fish market.

If traveling in Busan this is definitely a must see market! It’s right off the Jagalchi metro stop. Even if you’re not willing to eat there it’s really cool to just walk through. You won’t be sorry!

If you like seafood and don’t mind the smell, then this is the place for you. There are stalls after stalls selling the same to you and I suppose it all comes down to how well you can bargain. The owners are able to converse...More

We got to the market in the early morning 8am during the week and definitely was not crowded but by 10am we noticed it more crowded that we had to keep an eye out for each other to avoid having to find each other.
