The fish auction, Eski Foca

 Every morning in Foca the local fishermen bring the days catch to the local fish market.  At 9:30 am, bidding commences as restauranteurs and other interested buyers set the market price.
The old fishermen grimly gather around as their livelihood is auctioned off.

Cats are also extremely interested in the days catch.

The seas are plentiful here.  The rocks teem with sea urchin, yet to our surprise no one seems interested in harvesting them!  Its like the Turks have never had "uni."

sea urchin, and a bottle cap
We tried to harvest them ourselves but lacked sufficient tools.  Next time we'll come better prepared.
