Fresh fish from the outer islands can be found at the fish market next to Uliga Dock. Shopping at the market is win-win for you (delicious fish) and for the people on the outer islands (hard to come by dollars). The facility was built with funds from Japan and was completed in 2011. It is operated by the Marshall Islands Marine Resources Authority (MIMRA).
As well as fresh fish, the market’s staff prepare dried fish jerky, which is approved for mailing overseas. If you need ice in large quantities, the fish market is the place to buy (it’s good quality and its water is fine for drinking).
To give you an idea of how often the Majuro market has fresh fish in one year it completed the following number of trips in financial year 2013: Arno 48, Maloelap 18, Aur 17, Jaluit 8, Wotje 2, and one trip each to Mili, Likiep, Ailuk, and Namu.
The OIFMC enforces quality and size limits on the fish that are brought in from the outer islands.
