Underpinning Sydney Fish Market’s commitment to the ongoing sustainability and viability of the Australian seafood industry, is an equally firm commitment to the individuals and businesses that are part of it.
This includes our tenants and our staff, whose work brings the auction, the site, and our broader industry activities, to life every day. Together, their efforts create the unique, vibrant atmosphere the market is renowned for.
Our market is the lifeblood for fishers and aquaculturists in more than 300 regional communities across Australia, who sell through our wholesale auction or retail outlets. We also have many small businesses, retailers and restaurants which rely upon us for supply.
We actively support them through initiatives which inject value back into their communities, including local area promotions, and the purchase and leasing of fishing quota.
This support extends to our mechanisms of sale and activity, including our Dutch auction which ensures fair market prices are attained at sale, backed by a guaranteed seven day payment system.
Additionally, we support these communities by working with peak bodies, environmental non-government organisations, research organisations and government, to make sure the industry’s interests are represented, both in the media and behind the scenes.
