Parrot fish are abundant in the Red Sea. They get their name from their mouths and teeth, which resemble a parrot’s beak. Parrot fish are mostly found in tropical areas around the world and like to live in shallow coral reefs where they feed on different organisms. I love the gorgeous colors of this fish and it is one of my favorites. In my opinion, it is also one of the best tasting fish available in this region. This market offers fresh parrot fish for about 17 riyals per kilo. A kilo is about 2.2 pounds, so therefore, this fish costs roughly $2 US per pound.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
