Elmina Fishing Market

Elmina Slave Castle, built by the Portuguese in 1482, the oldest of its kind at 541 years old. On the left is Beny Lagoon, where fishermen bring their catch to the market. The lagoon connects to the ocean, making it accessible for fishermen. We’ll show you the interaction between market women and fishermen as they trade. Local boats are used for transportation. Let’s explore the fishing market.
