Tsukiji, Billingsgate, New Fulton and Muttrah



Feast your eyes on some 450 types of seafood at Japan’s largest wholesale fish market in Tokyo, which services the world’s most discerning fish eaters. Tuna sells for astronomical sums at early-morning auction, while the bustling undercover market is a spectacle, and perfect for the freshest of sushi lunches.



More fish than anywhere else in the UK arrives at this London market from across the world, including Norwegian salmon, New Zealand eels, and live Canadian lobster. It’s all sold in 30 shops and nearly 100 stands, alongside smoked and cured fish, caviar, cooked shellfish, and other seafood produce.


New Fulton

The United States’ premier fish market was established in the Bronx in 1822, though it has occupied new premises since 2005. New York chefs turn up early morning for fresh supplies before retail customers arrive for the pick of everything from blue marlin to soft-shell crab, wild salmon to swordfish.



Muscat’s main port district still retains the air of a fishing village, especially early in the morning when the live catch of the day arrives at the fish market. Tuna, grouper, shrimp, octopus, and whole kingfish ready to spit-roast are sold from stalls, wheelbarrows, or direct off the fishing boats.
