Can't help but worry about food safety when you see this. This is the same slum under the bridge I discussed in my last post (C Scheme Basti). These fish mongers buy their stock from a fish market, gut and filet them here, and then resell it at a local food #market. This place is swarming with flies - it's overwhelming - and there are piles of guts overflowing from buckets onto the mud floor. I asked if this was intended for sale only outside the slum. They said they also sell in the basti - which was reassuring notwithstanding the sanitary concerns. On a lighter note, they asked if I would like to buy some fish. After a pause, I politely declined.
