The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries announced that it will hold the ‘2022 Korea Fisheries Exhibition’, a seafood price discount event for 17 days from tomorrow (20th) to the 6th of next month.
Target items include squid and mackerel, pollock and cutlassfish, six popular fish species such as kiwi (oysterfish) and dried anchovies, and packaged sashimi (pork, flounder), which has increased household consumption due to the prolonged ‘COVID-19’.

In addition, consumers can purchase mobile seafood gift certificates that can be used in traditional markets up to KRW 200,000 at a 20% discount through the Zero Pay App.
