PHOTOS: Nigeria's Largest Crayfish Market?
The Stone Wharf Jetty in Oyinbo, Lagos Mainland is home to what is arguably Nigeria’s largest crayfish market.
The market takes place every other nine days and is kept wet by fishermen in Ilaje in Ondo State and other parts of Niger Delta.
Every market day, a local vessel carrying seafood cargo – crayfish, dried fish, snails – berths at the Jetty and traders across Lagos feast on the cheap supplies of the abundant seafood cargo.
Some traders also patronise the market to boost their export businesses.
Besides seafood, the vessels also bring drums of dry gins, plantain, coconut, garri, palm oil and several other agricultural produce.
An estimated 50 million naira worth of transactions take place here each market day.
Bounce News visited the market recently and here are some shots from the market scene.
