Who We Are
Mex Hunt has been involved in the shop for 30 years.
Sons Pete and Tom, began helping in the family owned fish market whilst studying throughout their school years including on weekends & school holidays.
When they finished their schooling, both young men started working in a full time capacity, gaining invaluable experience in filleting & processing, managing retail & wholesale sales as well as production. With a growing passion to continue in their father’s footsteps and build on the traditional seafood market, they proudly took over the helm in mid 2011 when The Big Fish, Fish Market was born.
Having spent their lives in and around the seafood industry, both brothers now own and operate The Big Fish, Fish Market. Between them, they have a lifetime of experience and great knowledge of all things seafood.
As the boys say,
‘We love fish and we want to share our love for the sea with you!
We regularly help our customers with tips and selection of the most suitable fish for their meal ideas. If you enjoy fish and are not sure how to prepare it or would like some guidance, then drop in and say hello to anyone of our friendly team.’
