I go the fish markets at around 8:30 am during the weekdays to avoid the lunch time rush and buy what I need to take home. For those wishing to have lunch, no later than about 11:00 am would be a good time to look around to see what’s on offer, find a seat and then order your meal. Sitting outside, breathing in the fresh salty air, with the harbour with the fishing boats view and a tasty seafood lunch accompanied by a great Australian white wine will be remembered as a heavenly outing for years to come. Bon Appétit.

The wholesale auctions are an event in itself. The amount of seafood exhibited (second only to Tokyo) is enormous. The Dutch auction is where the retailers bid on the seafood. The seafood is fresh off the boats and the bidding atmosphere is exhilarating. This is a once in a lifetime experience and never to be forgotten.
