Crowding for fish

SAM_0943

Everyone fishes in Tarfaya.  Someone gave us nice pieces of soles and fresh octopuses.  Evening is the time for street market.  Fish are sold when there is no wind.  Sometimes wind blows crazy for days and fishermans are wondering around main road what to do.  There is a commercial fish market building by the port of Tarfaya.  Fish is up for auction and send to European countries.  Commercial fish boats form China or Korea were pulled in the port.  A local man said he goes to Dakhra in Western Sahara, driving down South arong the coast form Tarfaya for 5 hours, to catch octopus.  He said Japanese ship comes to buy them.
