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.
