Auction

Fishing vessels deliver their catch during the night to the Market or across the road at Wynyard Wharf where the fish is unloaded.

The Fish Market auction is ready in time for 5.00 am when the registered buyers arrive to check the day’s catch before budding starts at 6.00 am using the Dutch clock auction – a system aimed at a quick sale of products at competitive premium prices.

How it works: The auctioneer starts the clock at approximately $2.00 above the price per kilo that each lot is expected to receive. The price then drops every ten seconds until a buyer stops it by entering a bid on their keypad. The buyers name then appears on the on the clock to confirm the price and the quantity of the transaction. Members of the public are welcome to attend the auction and a viewing gallery has been provided for this purpose.
