Ajman Fisk Market, UAE.

The majority of the fishermen come from India, from the state of Gujarat. The market takes place every Saturday afternoon and is a huge spectacle.
The fish are sorted on the boat decks upon arrival at the port into baskets of similar type fish and then laid out on the yard for the traders to inspect & purchase by public auction. The public buyers have a choice to get the fish cleaned and gutted by a team of men in green plastic coats in the market building, and also to have the fish cooked in a small fish cooking shop that makes its own spice mixes to suit the fish taste.
