In an effort to improve hygiene and maintain the freshness of fish sold on the Corniche, the Doha Municipality has created a new covered area for the market.

The zone, which is located near the Halul Cafe, includes some two dozen new shaded stalls, with metal basins that have drainage.

Two fish market salesmen there told Doha News that the renovated area will open on Jan. 1, 2015. According to a sign posted near the market, the hours are going to be from 7am to 1pm, and 7pm to midnight.

Meanwhile, some fish sellers continue to push their wares on the waterfront in the mornings and evenings.

According to the Gulf Times, stocks have been plentiful over the past few days after windy conditions died down, bringing fish prices down for now.

Qatar is home to many fish markets, including in Abu Hamour and Al Wakrah.

Renovated….that’s a bit of an understatement / misnomer. Fish was being sold on the sidewalk!

The metal basins are already rusted. That’s what they call hygienie here.

It looked more dusty than rusty when I went there yesterday…definitely seems to be an improvement over putting the fish on plastic tarps on the ground.

Anyone know if they only sell wholesale there or clean/fillet and sell to you by kilo?
