Lampulo Fish Auction

Here are  pictures I took this afternoon at Lampulo fish auction or known as TPI (Tempat Pelelangan Ikan). Located not too far from Baiturrahman Grand Mosque (Banda Aceh well known Mosque), this is the largest fishing port in Banda Aceh. I got here when two fishermen boats were loading the fish, mostly meckerels. There are some yellow tail tunas as well. Those fishermen spent five days in the ocean and caught more then 10 tons of fish. The best part? beside the welcoming smile and friendly talk, I got to bring home a big bag of fish ( a man in white singlet is holding a blue plastic bag full of fish ).
