Sydney Fish
Market is the largest market of its kind in the southern hemisphere, and the third largest seafood market in terms of variety in the world. Approximately 2,700 crates (around 50-55 tonnes) of the freshest possible seafood is auctioned each day through the computerised Dutch auction system to approximately 150 buyers. An incredible variety of seafood is sourced from individual fishermen, co-operatives, fishing businesses, and aquaculture farms in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific Region, with over 100 species available to buyers daily.
