東港 Donggang Fishery Port


Been returning to this port to get fresh seafood supply. Most of the time when we were there, we were not able to see the Tuna auction because we were there for the wet market which only begins around 4pm and by then the auction center would have ended. 


So the last time we went there early before noon and managed to get a glimpse of  the Tuna auction in action 

It was a great experience to see how the auction was done and at the same time how they would sliced up the Tuna, packed and shipped out. 

Over at the wet market which begins around 4pm, you will find varieties of seafood and Sashimi stalls. You can buy these fresh seafood and there are cooked stalls which can prepare the dishes to your preference however you will need to pay them for their cooking effort.
