If you have never had the opportunity to watch local fishermen go out and bring back their catch; If you've never been around these colorful longboats or a real working fish market, you may want to visit. Wear or bring shoes you don't mind stepping in muck as this IS A WORKING fish market, not just a waterfront tourist spot... 更多
My cousin and I went to the fish market thinking it would be like any other fish market: some boats, some people, and lots of fish. What we found was incredible! Hundreds of boats fighting the waves, fishermen bringing the fish and selling it, all in organized chaos under the sunshine! Definitely definitely definitely recommend!!
A place not to miss.......basic, smelly and fish everywhere! As a major export of Mauritania, this is the place where it all happens. The fish are divided up into three quality classes: Quality 1 - For Export, 2 and 3 - for local consumption. The place is busy, buying and selling, boats coming in all the time, very fresh fish!!... 更多

The day we visited had stormy seas. Then the frantic Rush of people with baskets, trays, bags whatever they have bringing the fish into... 更多
Check the tides and go when the fishermen come back from the sea - it's great to see all those colourful boats coming in and how people manage to pull the boats in. Watching all the buzz when men go out and bring the buckets on their head back to the beach where the fish get sorted and displayed in... 更多
