The inserted picture was taken in an open landing site at Saadan (Tanga) in which fish sale takes place. In this market, men are normally the fish sellers while women are usually the fish buyers. The fish shown in the photo are Indian mackerel (Rastrelliger kanagurta).

Typically, the small pelagic fish are sold fresh to buyers as most of the sardines and mackerel are sold fresh while about 90% of the anchovies are processed.
