Tourism is the main source of income for the local population in many regions of Egypt. Hurghada is one of the most famous resorts in the country, and at the same time it is very much loved by Russian tourists, but many locals still work here in the fishing industry. In this regard, the fish market in Hurghada attracts many tourists with its diversity and authenticity.
Fishermen operate throughout the Red Sea, but the departure and arrival point for fishing vessels is Hurghada. For local residents, the fish market is a historical place that has been seen by more than one generation of fishermen, seafood sellers, tourists from all over the world.
There is a market not far from the workshop where the best fishing boats in Hurghada are made. There is also a picturesque mosque nearby. This is the real historical center of the city. In this regard, travel agencies in Hurghada began to advertise visiting the market as one of the city’s attractions. The head of the Hurghada Tourist Guides Syndicate, Bashar Abu Taleb, told the TURPROM information group that many tourists visit the fish market several times during their holidays to experience the traditions and customs of the local culture.
However, the market needs renovation for a long time. Local authorities say there is a development plan for the area that includes the reconstruction of the site. In the future, the fish market in Hurghada will acquire its own parking lot, a food court, as well as specialized shops for cleaning and cooking fish.
