Jagalchi Fish Market, Busan, South Korea, Copyright Chris Gregory 2008

Before we went to China in 2008 for our Yangtze River Cruise my wife and I spent three weeks touring South Korea with our hosts, the parents of our new Korean daughter-in-law.  One of the highlights of this time was a visit to the Jagalchi Fish Market in Busan.  It was a wet day and people visiting the market crowded the areas under the canvas awnings seeking shelter while they inspected the daily catch offered by the market vendors.  Many of the fish on display were new to us and we were fascinated to watch local housewives carefully selecting fish for that night’s meal.
