Sydney Fish Market

On a sunny day at the Sydney Fish Market, "the largest market of its kind in the southern hemisphere", throngs of people are lining up to buy fish: sashimi sliced wafer thin with very, very sharp knives; oysters; and enormous platters of fried, battered, steamed or sautéed delicacies. The market has a laudable approach to sustainability, but looking at the beautiful and varied fish on sale here, I couldn't help wondering how long it will even be possible to buy fish in this way (14,500 tonnes of seafood are traded here every year).


  1. So much drool over that fresh seafood platter! Looks AMAZING!

  2. It was - that was my lunch. People were walking by me with the most astonishingly huge plates full of calamari, whitebait, squid and battered fish. And chips. I managed to resist - I am already ballooning thanks to this blog!
