Fresh seafood and unique treats draw international buyers to Penghu

Penghu not only boasts one of the most beautiful bays in the world, it also has world-class seafood. Buyers from the U.S., Japan and six other countries have converged on Penghu to meet farmers and shop for fresh seafood at an annual expo. Now in its third year, this event is organized by the Penghu County Government and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council to help showcase Penghu to the world.

Fresh fish and plump squid from Penghu’s fisheries are on display. These jewels of the ocean are catching the eye of international buyers.
