The photo caption shows the buying process of smoked fish in Selenge which is a specialty of this province. It may be of interest to add that the per capita consumption which is 0.5 kg/year which is the third lowest level in the world in 2016. However, it seems that Selenge is one of few regions in Mongolia where smoked fish is really common and is displayed whether in shops such as the one shown in the photo or on stalls along the road. In fact in some train stations, some local women are selling drinks, ice cream, smoked fish and home baked food.
