These guys are good.

I like aligro too, but hate going through the Gübrist Tunnel and all the associated highway mess before it.

For local fish, if that's what you mean, I'd contact a local fisher. Expect availability to change daily.

either on site and also
Tuesday and Friday at Bürkliplaty market
Saturday at Lindenplatz-Altstetten market

various outlets

More fish from Lake Zurich: https://schweizerfisch.ch/zuerichsee.html

Next to Dörig Frisch Fisch and Aligro there is also Bianchi https://shop.bianchi.ch/, but they do not serve private customers anymore since the Niederdorf store closed 1994.

Re: Where to buy whole fish in/near Zurich

Dead, or alive?

Fresh, frozen, or dried?

Saltwater, or fresh?

For food, pond, or acquarium?

Braschler (retail and wholesale) is now Frischerparadies. I've yet to go there as it's a bit out of the way, but apparently it's a great place to eat, shop, and have a drink.

Different Braschlers, different persons, unrelated businesses,
Frischeparadies was indeed Braschler’s Comestibles Import AG which was sold to Transgourmet Schweiz AG

Fischerei Braschler is an actual fisherman from Hurden. If you want to get closer to the source you must fish yourself.

Re: Where to buy whole fish in/near Zurich

Thank you all for responses, we are looking around with great interest.

Thus far we've had great difficulty finding sole that is not 50CHR per kilo In general, we more specifically look for fresh water fish, whole. Preferably fresh, but frozen would be okay too. Interestingly, we saw carp in rivers, but not in stores I am also thinking seriously about getting a fishing license.

Re: Where to buy whole fish in/near Zurich

Aligro has carp. Traditionally, like oyster, carp is only sold in months with an R.

Re: Where to buy whole fish in/near Zurich

Hi there!

I love fish, but here in Zurich, it's not that easy to find a nice one.

I used to buy fish at the fish Bottega back in Italy: nice whole fish everywhere.

Here I go to the Frisch Fisch Mercato. I think there is more than one in Zurich, but I've tried the one close to Letzi Park and I'm always super satisfied, also wild fish, squid, calamari, cozze (mussels) un vongole (clams) from Italy, for instance.
