The fishmarket in Busan is really worth a visit. It is very crowed consisting of a good mix of locals and very few tourists (at least of western people). This way it seams to be a authentic experience. You’ll find everything the ocean has to...More
Walked thru the market to find row after row of tanks with live fish, eels, shrimp, crabs , lobsters plus much more. Had sashimi dinner at one of the stands with fish that had been swimming minutes before. Amazing experience. Very noisy and vibrant. Highly...More
My friends and I decided to had a meal here as we found that the Ajuma “was” very nice. Although we found that the price is on the high side. They not only cooked our seafood by wrong method and super unfriendly.

Definitely is not a place that I would recommend to people that is vegetarian or is sensible about animals are handled...overcrowded fish tanks is the rule, and there are some activity to kill and prepare the fish for cooking (removal of the skin, fins, etc)
A local-style Korean market, food is good but don't expect too much decoration of the shop.

and then had a barbecue eel (it was still moving while being cooked....yucky but...More

We got to the market in the early morning 8am during the week and definitely was not crowded but by 10am we noticed it more crowded that we had to keep an eye out for each other to avoid having to find each other.

Seollal is celebrated 2/15-2/17
I don’t see any reason the market to stay closed through the whole weekend. This market supplies seafood throughout S.Korea. Also most Koreans make this holiday pilgrimage to the south, so the crowds should be heading north by Saturday. Hope this helps.
