Taiwan Photo Journal: Shingang Harbor Fish Market in Chenggong

Shinggang Harbor

We came upon a lively fish market at Shingang Harbor near Chenggong while traveling along Taiwan’s Eastern coastline. We found it by chance while looking for the Taitung National Aquarium, and once we realized we had arrived just in time to watch the local fishermen bringing their catch in for the day, we decided to skip the aquarium. This was the first time I had my new camera out. I love wandering through fish markets in Taiwan. Not only are they a riot of colors, taste and smells, but they are usually quartered in old ships. Sharks, rays, giant tuna, swordfish and an assortment of other fantastically colored fish are all on display.
