Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Updated COVID-Safe Measures at Sydney Fish Market

The health and safety of all visitors and staff here at Sydney Fish Market is our highest priority. We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and respond to all guidelines which are issued by the Australian Department of Health and the NSW Department of Health.

In line with other public spaces and facilities, we have implemented precautionary hygiene measures at Sydney Fish Market, including hand sanitisation points throughout the site and an increased cleaning regime of common touch points across our retail and operational areas.

Sydney Fish Market is also observing safe social distancing measures and asks all visitors to site to ensure they keep a minimum of 1.5 metres distance from each other at all times. Dedicated COVID Marshals are onsite throughout busy periods to ensure compliance.
