Where to buy seafood for Christmas?

By Lucy Wilson - 15 December 2014 12

Hi Rioters.
I’m looking for recommendations on where and when to buy seafood in Canberra to be eaten on Christmas day?
A few years ago I bought some from a place in Weston Creek (opposite the post office) and it was great. However the place has since closed down.
I’m after large prawns, lobster tails and some oysters.
Thanks.

What’s Your opinion?

In years gone by I have posted on FB about The Oyster Haven in Geelong St Fyshwick (near where the old Rebels club house used to be). I haven’t been there for a long time but I’ve looked them up on Google and they are still there. They always had the best seafood in Canberra.

+1 for Ocean Fresh. What is the consensus on the best type of prawns to buy?

I like the saltier tasting prawns so that’s tigers I believe.

Those prawn circles from Vietnam you can get in Coles have a distinctive flavour you don’t get from other sorts.

Last 4 or 5 years I have bought my Xmas seafood, at Woden Fish Market opposite Woolies. It has been good everytime.

If you scroll down the front page of Fyshwick markets the trading hours are there.

Ocean Fresh (think that’s what it’s called), at Fyshwick. I guess this year they will be open up to Xmas eve. They also from memory open for New Years eve.

Thanks. I went to Ocean Fresh’s website and they don’t have Christmas trading hours listed. They only have opening hours as Thursday – Sunday. I’ll give them a call.
