Australians have a love affair with seafood; enjoyed all year round but especially on the holidays such as Easter and Christmas. The silly season is synonymous with seafood.
Fresh Seafood
Brisbanites are fortunate to have a number of fantastic fresh seafood markets including Fish Factory (Morningside), Samie's Girl (Hamilton) and Morgans Seafood Market (Redcliffe).

These outstanding outlets have a superb selection available - prawns, oysters, lobsters, sandcrabs, mudcrabs, Moreton Bay bugs, squids, scallops, mussels, and whole or filleted fish everything for a feast befitting a king or queen.

Other popular places to pick up succulent seafood are the weekend markets like Jan Power's Farmers Markets and Rocklea Market (Rocklea).

If I feel like driving, I go to Samie's Girl. If I want to go locally, I like Ocean's Catch on Montague Road at West End, which opened up about 6 months ago. They don't keep a huge variety of fresh fish, but what they have is generally good and the prices are ok. They also do fish and chips, nice salads, etc and have a large seating area. Their marinated octopus is great. :)

Brisbane CBD Market - Princess Charlotte Seafood has really fresh seafood. The owner was a fish man for a long time so he know where to get really good quality fish and seafoods. You can also order from their website and collect in various market in Brisbane.

I'm loving this list- there are some new places to try. We have always had good seafood from Samie's Girl or the Powerhouse Markets.

For those out the west side of Brisbane - Aussie Seafood Shop at Durack; Kim Seafood at Darra or Van Loc at Darra - super cheap and always fresh, I don't even bother driving out to Durack now that I have the two places at Darra close by.

The Fish Kitchen on Annerley Road at Dutton Park has a very small but good fresh seafood outlet behind the fish and chip shop (downstairs). It's so small that you can easily miss it, but the seafood is fresh and good, and the prices are reasonable. They supply many Brisbane restaurants, but aren't well-known. They will shuck oysters for you while you wait.

Is there really one? We only have limited access in Brisbane. Where are the clams in the shell and pippies and more. Will this city ever catch up with the rest of the world. I know that our country is going through a tough time. We need to buy the freshest produce that we can get and preferably not through the supermarkets but the little guy. There are plenty around, just get off you couch and look, or are you too lazy to support the real people of Australia, especially the fishermen and farmers..
