It has been confirmed that Sydney Fish Market (SFM) will be completely rebuilt in a new location further around Blackwattle Bay – only casting distance from the old site. Premier Mike Baird and Minister for Planning Rob Stokes have announced the first step in the tendering process, calling for interest in designing and engineering the project.
Recognised as one of Sydney’s premier tourist attractions as well as an important commercial hub, SFM has been in operation for 50 years. Its co-owners, who include members of the NSW seafood industry, fishers, tenants and merchants have been keen on redevelopment for many years. SFM General Manager Bryan Skepper said:
“As much as Sydney loves its fish market, we have long outgrown our existing facilities and a total re-imagination of the site and offering is needed for our customers.”
UrbanGrowth NSW will partner with SFM to oversee the project. A key part of the Bays Precinct vision, the new fish market will double in size, be more easily accessible, feature state of the art amenities and premiere dining, while retaining its wholesale, retail and fishing enterprise.
“Sydney Fish Market is where fishers from across Australia sell their catch making it the flagship venue for presenting Australian seafood to the world. This redevelopment will be a huge boost to regional fishers and seafood retailers in a highly competitive world market,” says Mr. Skepper.
