Fish vendors normally work from 7 to 11 in the morning, but the shortage in sales has caused them to wait 3 more hours for possible a hopeful sale

Mazatlan, Sinaloa.- Summer vacation season has not increased fish sales for vendors of the Playa Norte embarcadero, after registering sales of only 40 percent.

The president of the Union of Merchants of Marine Products, María del Rosario Flores Galindo, commented the few sales contrast with the 70 percent they had in 2018, where the holidays started late.

Last year was good, last year this month we already had a good sale by tourists who come to this part of the port, where they take the opportunity to buy fresh fish.
