Park Slope

Ocean Fish Market Now Open On 5th Avenue


Ocean Fish Market, 413 5th Ave
Fifth Avenue is getting more and more fishy — first Grand Central Oyster Bar Brooklyn, then word of Luke’s Lobster coming soon, and now Ocean Fish Market has made its move from 7th Avenue to the former Park Slope Veterinary Care space at 413 5th Avenue.

They opened last week, relocating from their former space on the corner of 7th Ave and 3rd St, which was listed for rent earlier this year, taking over the vet’s office after they moved to a newly renovated spot just up the block.

Just like at their old space, they’ve got both fresh fish — clams, at $4 per pound, were looking good when we stopped in yesterday — and sushi available to go. They’ll have menus available soon, as well as delivery for the sushi.

Though there are some other options for sushi on 5th (and, of course, there are also several on 7th), a fish market seems like a welcome addition to this end of the avenue — what do you think?

Ocean Fish Market is located at 413 5th Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets. Hours are Monday-Saturday 8am-7:30pm, and Sunday 9am-6:30pm.

  1. I was so happy to see a fish market opening on 5th Ave. We haven’t had one in a billion years. But when I saw it was them, all happiness went away. I never shopped there when they were at 7th Avenue after more than a few bad experiences. & I will not be going there now.

    Sad also that there will be yet another empty storefront on 7th Avenue

  2. Be careful. This place is NOT good. The quality of fish is subpar. Had quite a few bad experiences. It seems like all the crappy businesses that couldn’t make it on 7th are just moving to 5th. 7th has a ton of vacancies and 5th is turning into 7th with chains and lots of mediocre crap.

  3. hopefully they wont give me a dirty look everytime I ask them for some more soy sauce then just 1 little packet for 4 rolls.

  4. Day old sushi? yeah, sounds wonderful……At least the urgent care center is across the street. 🙂

  5. It’s not the only thing that’s day old there. Check out the reviews on yelp. So many reference bad fish and very unethical practices of repackaging old fish and making it seem new.

    “I’d bought fish a couple of times before from Ocean Fish Market and never had an issue. Then yesterday, we went in for some shrimp, peeled & cleaned, ideally. They had some already packaged & weighed (as opposed to loose over ice, which were the unpeeled ones).

    We got home, started working on dinner later that evening, and when I took the package of fresh shrimp out of the fridge, saw that it had been packaged three days earlier, based on the date on their weight label.

    Totally unacceptable for a fresh fish market.”
