A fishmonger (fishwife for women practitioners - "wife" in this case used in its archaic meaning of "woman") is someone who sells raw fish and seafood. Fishmongers can be wholesalers or retailers, and are trained at selecting and purchasing, handling, gutting, boning, filleting, displaying, merchandising and selling their product. In some countries modern supermarkets are replacing fishmongers who operate in shops or fish markets.
Here we are at a fishmonger's in Preston Market, in Preston, a Melbourne suburb. This is an excellent market with a variety of shops and stalls: Fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, all manners of seafood, meats, delicatessen, herbs and spices, clothing, shoes, arts and crafts can be found here in abundance!
