With the first-class catch landing, the Ishinomaki Fish Market was one of the largest markets in Japan until March 11th. The building of this Market had been totally wiped away by the tsunami and the land sank by 70 to 80 centimeters.

Today (July 12th) it resumed activity after 4 months since the tsunami disaster. Some four tonnes of the fishes including squids were set up for bidding.

The bidding prices for the squids went up twice as much as usual bid. The buyers called it as a celebration price and showed joys in buying at any prices.

The electricity and water systems came back only in July and a tentative facility using tents with the size of 60 meters long and 10 meters wide was installed along the quay side.
