honiara market fish

The fish market sits at the back of the Honiara Central Market… Bustling and busy, you have to be sharp to obtain a bargain here.

While the fruit and vegetable traders are a balanced mix of men and women, the fish market seems to be predominantly staffed by men. Men do most of the fishing in the Solomons… while women prepare the meals and clean the tools, it’s usually the men out in the boats and dealing with market customers.

Beware weighted scales and you will be able to find deliciously fresh fish here…
