Fish Market - Sokcho, South Korea

Sokcho is a major fishing port city. There are two primary fish markets -- I spent hours exploring each of them. Never have I seen so much fresh (live) seafood, of every imaginable type. It's all for sale, the price is always negotiable and very reasonable since the competition is fierce. For me these markets were like visual fantasy land -- the imagery was incredible. I couldn't shoot enough film.

In the above photo, the colorful tubs are filled with live seafood to choose from, and are continuously being pumped with fresh sea water. The women in the foreground is offering specimens for sale, to passersby.
