New Zealand is a nation surrounded by the ocean, and it's no surprise that seafood plays a significant role in our country's cuisine. The waters surrounding Aotearoa are teeming with an abundance of fish and seafood, from snapper, tuna, and salmon to crayfish, mussels, and oysters.
In Auckland, seafood enthusiasts and top chefs alike flock to the Auckland Fish Market to get their hands of the best of the day’s catch. This bustling spot near the city centre has a rich history that dates back to the early 1900s when it was established as a wholesale fish market. Over the years, the market has undergone several renovations and expansions, and in 2018 it was transformed into a modern seafood hub. Today, the market is a hub for those who come to browse the freshest and highest quality seafood available daily.
