A rare fish market in the heart of the city is getting its first taste of the summer season.
Market trader Tom Boggins, from the Queensland Government-owned Fish Market, says the market will be busy as the months go by.
“We have a couple of fish that we’ve been looking for,” he said.
“One was a yellow finned salmon, which is a bit of a rarity, and we’ve got a bit more for our own market.”
It was actually caught and it was probably the second fish that I’d ever caught.
“I’m hoping it’s going to be a good day for us because it was very warm and we had quite a bit in stock.”
Mr Boggin says he hopes the market’s popularity will help raise funds for the local community.
“That’s one of the main reasons why we’ve had a fish market here,” he explained.
“If you’ve got the money, you can do anything you want, you know.”
What’s important is that we can have our fish, we can raise money for our community, we have our community here, so that’s what we’re doing.
