The photo shows a modern fish market in Nellore that has been constructed with hygienic conditions. The building was constructed by the National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB), and the Municipal Corporation of Nellore in the city. Establishing a fish market such as this one is a part of enhancing domestic fish consumption programme.

This market accommodates nearly 70 stalls, an equal number of platforms for processing (cutting and cleaning), auction platforms, solid waste, and cold storage facilities. Moreover, there is space for fish drying as well as necessary utilities. It may be of interest to note that the market is furnished with an effluent treatment system.
