Parking and pedestrian entry is restricted on site and police are assisting with the market’s enhanced security measures.
The market’s five seafood retailers are limiting the number of customers allowed inside at any one time and are operating under a one-way traffic system.
The Fish Market will have extended trading hours on Good Friday – traditionally its busiest day of the years – with its doors remaining open from 5am until 5pm.
The number of cars allowed into the carpark is also being limited as part of social distancing measures.(9News)

“Shoppers should come prepared knowing what they want to purchase to enable them to move through the retail areas quickly and efficiently before returning home,” the Sydney Fish Market advised customers on its website.
