  • Fresh fishes, shrimps, crabs, prawns, lobsters... Almost all types of fresh fishes available at the Market.... Come at bidding time... You get the best and unbeatable pricing, good quality. There are smaller shops which can dress the catches in to your favourite ways....
  • Decent in every aspect as fish markets go. Nothing fancy, has a relatively wide selection of vendors and produce (focused on fish and prawns) Usually the produce is fresh, but like always I would keep an eye still on what I am buying. Prices are also pretty good!
  • Traditional fish market. Fresh fish is unloaded daily as the boats come in. Live fish auctions take place daily. Good variety of fish. Competitive pricing. Beware of the small. A first class tourist attraction.
  • One of the best place to get fish in Kuwait. Make sure to bargain and would recommend only Kuwaiti seafood, since it's more fresh and less salty. The Oman or Saudi fish are very salty and not that fresh. Definitely the Kuwait fish would cost more. When it comes to big fish like Kingfish, Tuna and all, go for Kuwait ones.
  • The Central Fish market is the premier fish market. She is a purpose built fish market which is equipped with the latest facilities for a modern fish market. She is large and specious. Apart from the fish mongers that sell fish there there are periodic fish auctions. Normally when you buy fish in the Central Fish Market it is cleaned for you. The fish market is kept very clean.
