Jagalchi Fish Market Tours

8 Reviews
Jagalchi Fish Market
Visitors come from all over to sample the fresh seafood at Jagalchi Fish Market in Busan. The largest seafood market in the country, Jagalchi is unique in that it’s run largely by women—a tradition dating back to the Korean War, when many of the men were off fighting and their wives took over the family businesses.

The Basics
Walking through the market is akin to visiting an aquarium, as many fish are kept live in tanks to maximize freshness. There’s also dried seafood and plenty of shellfish. The market houses seafood restaurants on the second floor where you can bring your purchases to have them cooked and served to you on the spot or you can order from a menu. Most sightseeing tours of Busan include a walk through the fish market.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Jagalchi Fish Market is a must-visit for foodies, families, and first-time visitors.
  • Wear shoes with a good tread, as the wet floors of the market can get slippery.
  • Restrooms are available on each floor; accessible restrooms are on the second floor.
  • Not all shops take credit cards, so bring local currency if you plan to make purchases.
  • How to Get There
  • To get to the fish market, take the Busan Subway (Lines 1, 7, or 10) to Jagalchi Station. From there it’s about a 5-minute walk to the market.

When to Get There
The Jagalchi Fish Market is open daily from 5am to 10pm and closed on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. If you want to see the market at its most active, come early in the morning or in the late afternoon.

What to Eat at Jagalchi Fish Market
There’s plenty to satisfy your appetite at this seafood market, but the sheer variety can be overwhelming. Less adventurous eaters might opt for fried tuna (chamchi) or sashimi on rice (hoe-deopbap). Those looking to sample something more unique can try sea worm, commonly called a “penis fish” (gaebul), sea pineapple (meongge), or raw “live” octopus (sannakji), a market specialty.
