A good retail out let for good fish & other marine products

This is one place where one can get good fish, prawns and other products, that they clean and give. Parting is an issue on Fridays.

This is an amazing fish market. Fresh fish arrive daily. It does not smell fishy due to the fish being so fresh. You should ask before taking photos as some do not want their photos taken. This is perfect to check out the local culture. Be sure to dress properly and wear the right shoes as the ground is wet.

I am not one to visit fish markets, as I have seen many in my time. Plus I don't really like them, because it's wet and smelly. But to appease my dad who likes such places we went. If you are a fish lover, then this is probably one of the best fish markets I have ever been to. The... More

It's a working fish market, so you need to be mindful of that and not get in the road. But very interesting and great photo opportunity. Loved the huge yellow fin tuna.

This place is a worth a quick stop to see Omani fisherman and their catch of the day. Oman is known for more seafood in their Arabic Cuisine compared to other Persian Gulf Arab nations.

Fairly good fish market, reasonable size but certainly not big. Interesting to see the variety of sizes, shapes and hues of fish caught in the vicinity, including some real substantial specimen. You can stand by and observe how the fish are gutted and prepared. A real local working market, relatively few tourists in sight. There are even some tail-gate sales... More

We are seafood lovers and this place is almost a weekly visit must except in summers. Good fresh variety of seafood sometimes bargain prices. Also a bit touristy.

Interesting if you like to see what they fish in the area,it's small, not much to say about it. People are always friendly.

The fish market inMuttrah is one of my favourite places to enjoy on Saturday to buy fish for family. There are many types of fishes available there and most of them are even fresh or of the last night brought from another cities. There are also expert young people that prepares the cutting for the visitors for their fishes
