Fish Market Bakau

Fish Market Bakau

Much like the fishing village of Tanji, the fish market at Bakau is a vivid and sensuous experience, full of warmth and colour and is a glimpse into the authentic every day life of The Gambia.

At the market you can watch the entire process, from the fish being brought into the market from the brightly coloured fishing boats, to the filleting process and eventually the smoking and packaging of the fish. And, of course, if you so wish, you can take some fish to be barbecued or cooked as you choose.

As ever,  we also ask that you always maintain a respectful attitude towards the people and their work. You may find some people are against having their photos taken, so do ask before you start snapping away.
