Little bit about Negombo Fish Market

A fish market on the seashore, where you can buy fresh fish, lobsters, crabs and prawns throughout the day. It is an extremely wonderful sight to see the dozens of fishermen pulling their canoes/ fishnets to the shore singing quorus. All the fresh fish are brought straight from the fishing boats, kept spread on the shore and auction talks place. Anyone can walk to the fishermen and bargain for a price and buy some fish. On certain days when there are lot of fish caught, they are made to dry and rows of dried fish spread on the sand is an extremely spectacular sight. Salty dried fish are also tasty as the fresh fish and you should try out the curry –love it.
