As attention on Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues around the world, Sydney Fish Market is taking precautionary measures to protect its staff, workers, visitors and business operations.
Sydney Fish Market’s auction is the only market of its kind in Australia, servicing the seafood trade of hundreds of suppliers and buyers every weekday. Any closure to the auction would cause major disruption to this operation and of those we conduct business with.
Therefore, we have decided to suspend all non-essential access to the auction area to reduce the risk of a potential market closure. This includes a temporary suspension of our Behind the Scenes Tours.
We are monitoring the situation daily and are complying with and responding immediately to any relevant guidelines which are issued by the Australian Department of Health and the NSW Department of Health.
Please refer to the Sydney Fish Market website for updates on the reopening of Behind the Scenes tours.
