John's Fish Market

The best from Crete

Johns Fish Market In Wellington the seafood industry is blessed with people of Greek and Italian heritage. Started by John Kosmadakis from Crete, the shop is now run by John’s son George who has salt running through his veins and an extensive history in retail seafood. This is a classic Cretan family business in the best tradition.

George has forgotten more about fresh retail fish than most people learn in a lifetime. To get the fresh fish you need to know the fisherman. Both need to trust each other that on the one hand the fish is fresh and on the other that the retailer will support the fisherman in times of plenty and scarcity. George knows only too well the vagaries of catch and availability and looks after both his suppliers and customers. Having wholesale customers along with retail, smoked fish and fish & chips allows George to satisfy all his customers.

That’s the trick to a good fish shop. Buy it fresh, sell it quickly, buy some more. Seafood is a relationship business and George is a trustworthy man. The fishermen who sell to him trust him and you can too.
