1 review of Auction of Sète

The fish market

Every day at about 3pm, you can see the fishing boats returning. The fishermen carefully separate the fish to go to the market or to be sold. The auction system is now fully automated - the fish boxes are carefully weighed and auctioned, with sales made by remote. It's very practical, but I do miss the old days when fishmongers had to out-shout their rivals to win a lot. Much more fun to watch!
