Alex Stollznow of Sydney Fish Market told Daily Mail Australia that it is one of the best times to eat seafood, as many species thrive on the transition to the colder months.
& # 39; There is a lot of tropical fish in New South Wales, because the stream from the east of Australia brings a lot of fish along the coast, & # 39; said Mr. Stollznow.
Mr. Stollznow urges Aussies not only to try their old favorites, but also to achieve something new and different during Easter.
& # 39; Everything fresh will be tasty if you cook well, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; The more diversity Australians eat, the more sustainable they become, have something familiar, but do yourself a favor and try something new. & # 39;
Fresh, sustainably caught fish is said to be one of the tastiest options this coming weekend because they are highly present.
While all the fish options will be available at the Sydney Fish Market, Mr. Stollznow said that if people fail, every local fish market will have favorites at attractive prices.
Smaller species of mackerel such as the spotted mackerel that are usually caught in northern Queensland are now found in abundance in NSW.

& # 39; We get them a lot fresher and a lot cheaper, and it's meaty white fresh fish that is really great for cooking the fillets on the barbecue, & # 39; said Mr. Stollznow.
Small Mackerels sell between $ 17-23 dollars for a ready-made cutlet, lower than in previous years.
Mr Stollznow said that a lot of tuna has also been found in Australia, such as Mahi Mahi, another sweet, white-mouthed, open-mouthed fish, a great option for Easter.
Those who want to fish for shrimp have a very good Friday after a successful fishing season along the east coast of the country.
Both wild shrimp and small king prawns have been found in abundance and are top quality for low prices.

& # 39; An insider tip for shrimp is: the smaller it is the sweeter it is … and it's also cheaper, & # 39; said Mr. Stollznow.
He also suggested that farmed shrimp would be a good option for Friday, because the flavors are elevated and sweet.
But Mr. Stollznow said the best value will be found in the small to medium sized King Prawns and Black Tiger Prawns, which will sell mid-twenties per kilo, 30 percent cheaper than normal.
& # 39; The industry has had a really good weather and worked hard for Easter & # 39 ;, he said.
Another Easter favorite is oysters, with Sydney Rock Oysters that & # 39; thick and thick & # 39; and can be found in abundance at NSW.
& # 39; As for the southern part of Australia, they have the Pacific oysters that are not running out, and they are now in the best condition they have been in for the past six months, & # 39; said Mr. Stollznow.
& # 39; Things rarely happen so well, it is just the right amount to get things optimally. & # 39;

In Queensland the ultimate stunner for your buck has been found with scallops from Queensland, which are currently available at low prices.
& (39) (They are) plentiful and are at low prices with half scales that cost around $ 10 per dozen, & Marshall Betzel, vice president of the Seafood Marketeers Association, told The Courier Mail.
Another fish that is expected to be popular this year is the Australian barramundi, which is also expected to be found at a good price.
Victorian fish vendors will go to Dandenong and Prahran markets where they hope to sell whole fish to both enthusiastic seafood eaters and those who eat fish once a year.
Fishmonger Michael Curmi said Easter was one of the busiest times of the year, but sales vary where people come from.
& # 39; Europeans love octopus and squid, while Asian customers love mud crabs, & # 39; Mr. Curmi said to the Herald Sun.
& # 39; Generally, on Good Friday, customers buy whole fish to eat, a time of reflection and religion. They like to buy oysters and shrimps for Sunday, which is more of a party; a celebration. & # 39;

However, marine fish specialists from Western Australia say that misconceptions are the fault of people who do not try new things when it comes to buying fish.
The West reported that due to the lack of trust many people are stuck buying well-known, more expensive fish because they recognize the name.
& # 39; People really feel comfortable with the word snapper; a pink snapper is a good quality fish, but there is fish that is of much better quality … that costs much less, & said Phil Clark.
& # 39; Robinson sea bream is one of my favorite fish. It is absolutely beautiful and it is well priced. & # 39;
