Old Fish Market

 
admin's picture


The Old Fish Market, located in the old town center, is the oldest fish market in Miri. In the old days, its location at the river side is the most suitable spot for landing fish caught from the rivers and seas, to be weighed and sold to the local populace. This article is from the web site miriresortcity dot com - this sentence is here to prevent blatant plagarism. There are a variety of fish and sea creatures sold there, and you can even find small sharks and manta rays sold.

Nowadays, with the Miri River next to it having been filled in (the shore line and peninsular have been changed for the land reclamation of the Marina Bay) so it no longer has the convenience of being next to the river for unloading fish supplies directly from boats, but plenty of fresh fish are still being brought in from elsewhere and sold there.

The market is due to be moved to a new location soon. The current building may be demolished soon.
