On a cloudy, muggy Saturday, hundreds of San Diegans waited hours for a chance to buy freshly caught seafood at the grand opening of the open-air fish market in Seaport Village.

People were waiting for up to two hours long to get their hands on fresh rockfish, black cods, Pacific sanddabs, yellow fin and bluefin tunas, as well as stone crabs, box crabs and other seafoods.

Organizers said they were surprised — even shocked — by the large turnout.

The Tuna Harbor Dockside Fish Market will open weekly from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.
