Not the largest fish market but it's worth a look if you happen to be passing by....you can visit the fruit and veg market on the other side of the road as well. The market is clean and it's interesting to see how it operates.

Standard fish market over seas! Giant fish, biggest tuna you've ever seen; guts eveywhere and a fishy smell! Entertaining to see if you're in Male city.

This is probably the most interesting place you can go as you can get into the thick of the action. There are fish everywhere and your can see the fishermen unloading their catch from the boats in front.
