The Fishmonger's Son

After the closure of a 100-year-old family seafood business, another family legacy has taken its place.

Bespoke butchers and bakeries aren't quite a dime a dozen in Melbourne just yet, but there's certainly no shortage of options when it comes to finding top-notch pastries or meat cuts within the city and the suburbs. Finding a quality boutique shop dedicated to seafood is much harder, which is exactly where this humble Nicholson Street store comes in.

Taking over the space left behind when Canals Seafood shut up shop after 100 years of service, The Fishmonger's Son offers an abundance of freshly caught goodies sourced directly from the wholesale market each morning, plus preserved and pickled seafood delicacies. The son in question aims to provide a seafood deli with quality produce, service and advice, in honour of his late father, who supplied fresh fish to Melbourne retailer's from the Footscray Wholesale Market for 40 years.
