Summer means seafood and as we enjoy more salmon, prawns, oysters, barramundi, tuna, crab, mullet and flathead, we've got plenty of choices to grab the fresh fish bargains. If you're searching for a natural hit of Omega 3, you can catch your own at these fishing spots in Melbourne or grab a fistful of fish at one of these markets.

Queen Victoria Market – On the corner of Elizabeth and Victoria Streets, the QVM has 4 fishmongers in the meat and fish hall. Gazza's prepares filleted portions of Blue Eye Trevella as the icy cabinets overflow with prawns and shellfish, including periwinkles and mussels. Wayne Chitty at Happy Tuna has been at the market for almost 50 years, continuing a family business started in 1920s. You can also order online from QVM, choosing anything from prawn dumplings and pickled octopus to crayfish tails and rock lobster.

Claringbolds Seafood – At Shop 510, Prahran Market, 163-181 Commercial Rd, South Yarra, Claringbolds has been serving seafood since 1909. The most popular produce, including prawns, salmon and crab, are stocked alongside coral trout, Moreton Bay bugs and Coffin Bay oysters. Sushi is available, sliced by Japanese chefs and their website lists weekly specials and recipes. You can also order online.

South Melbourne Markets – On the corner of Coventry and Cecil Sts, you can park free for 2 hours on Wed, Fri, Sat and Sun while you stock up at one of 3 fishmongers, including Aptus, winner of 2015 Melbourne Market Award, serving $1 shucked oysters.
