On this trip we purposely sought out the Sydney Fish Market for some morning sashimi (really fresh!!) and to purchase seafood for our kitchen on the ship – some for lunches and dinners the next day or two and more for the freezer for the upcoming months when we will be on an expedition and will not have access to either towns or markets.  We were quite excited, as on our previous visit we were staying in a hotel in Sydney and, while we enjoyed some morning sashimi, could not purchase any seafood for “take-away” as we had no access to a kitchen.

“SFM (the 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 160 buyers.  The incredible variety of seafood is sourced from individual fishermen, co-ops, fishing businesses and aquaculture farms in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific Region with over 100 species available to buyers daily.” – SydneyFishMarket.com.au
