Footage shows pig guts flying onto the Parliament's floor and hitting a few of the men involved in the brawl.
The fight relates to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen's decision to allow imports of US pork containing ractopamine, a banned additive in a number of countries, including China and the European Union.
The president had announced that the imports would be allowed from January 1.
"I know that there are different opinions in our country, but this is a problem that any political party must face," she posted on her Facebook page ahead of the parliamentary section. "The import of American pork and beef is to have more choice on the market, people are not forced to eat it."
