Puerto Montt

January 15 Puerto Montt, Frutillar

Angelmó fish market

At Puerto Montt we went shopping in the Angelmó market area. There was a large fish and shellfish market; we didn’t buy anything there because we weren’t ready to attempt cooking a fish at the B&B.

Angelmó craft market

We spent quite some time at the craft market, where there were many stalls selling woolen goods and souvenirs. There were standard products that you could find at many of the stalls, and not many of them had unique items.

Waterfront

We chose a time when it wasn’t raining much, and ate our lunch by the path running along the waterfront. Most of the birds in the harbour were cormorants, but we saw our first penguin here, and also our first pelican of the trip.

Fishing boats

Puerto Montt is in the middle of the Chilean fish-farming industry, and when you fly into its airport from the south every channel and bay seems to have its own fish farm. But there is still a market for wild fish, although from the appearance of these boats it doesn’t seem to be very lucrative.
