...This is the place to visit! Located next to Busan Port and very near Biff shopping area, this is the largest fish market I have ever visited. Row upon row of every type of fish imaginable - and many species I've never seen before! Although I love visiting markets and I enjoyed visiting this one, I felt it was very... More

The Jagalchi fish market has everything imaginable. Check out the eel, crab, lobster, and octopus, among many others. You simply walk up and down the aisles and see the vendors and their products for sale.There is a restaurant upstairs.

Bought crabs, shrimps, lobsters, clams... We would like to have bbq seafood. The staff on second floor asked us 'steam steam?' 'bbq bbq?' I replied 'bbq', and we have all the seafood steamed (or boiled because the seafood is tasteless).

We visited this place in the morning, and it was already full of activities. There are all kinds of fishes, octopus, crabs etc. There are indoor and outdoor sections, not sure what is the difference.

Great place to enjoy fish and seafood. Also fascinating to see some of the seafood that is sold here and how they prepare certain fish like the Fugu.

Billed in guidebooks as a must-see, there really wasn't much to see. It's a large market beside a fishing-boat harbour. There are street stalls selling fish and shellfish, and three or four large warehouse-like buildings housing more stalls. It's great if you're serious about buying seafood; otherwise you're likely to be out of there in ten or fifteen minutes. The... More

If you love seafood you will love this place. I had the one-person seafood pot and it cost around 30000 won. Even if you do not like to eat seafood, this is still worth a visit if you wanna know the daily lives of those who work there or to experience an Asian seafood market. There are really a lot...
