About Dory Fleet Fish Market in Newport Beach, California
Newport Beach Dory Fishing Fleet and Dory Fleet Fish Market has a long history and tradition in Newport Beach. The only commercial boats permitted to cast off from the Newport Municipal Beach near Newport Pier, the numbers of these vessels and fishermen have dwindled from the early days when it was estimated that over 30 boats went out daily to catch fish that are sold in an open air market on the municipal beach in Newport Beach.
The Dory Fleet Market was dedicated as a historical landmark by Newport Beach Historical Society in June 1969. It is located north of the Newport Pier, with metered parking available. Customers line up at the boats to purchase fish most weekends, especially. The day’s catch is sold out of weather-beaten boats that function as sales counters and table tops where fish are beheaded and cleaned before customers’ eyes. Seafood lovers line up at the fish market around sunrise and leave with bags of fresh fish or crustaceans such as crab.
