Wet Market/Fish Market Sounds Los Angeles

A great way to start a Saturday morning is to wake up at 2:30 am and to drive to the San Pedro Saturday Night fish market. Instead of buying fresh fish… I capture the surrounding soundscape.

I arrived around 3.30 am and you might say this is a “hidden secret”! The wet market seems to only open on Saturdays around this time (I’m assuming most of the customers are restaurant owners!)

When I parked my car, I couldn’t help but notice all the license plates from all over the place like Nevada, Arizona and even Texas! 


Location San Pedro Fish Market
The docks are situated along a small street called “Signal Street” and just a couple of hundred meters away from Warehouse 01.
The Equipment I Used To Record The Fish Market Sounds

I used the Zoom H6 with a Rode NTG4+ for the exterior ambience and for interior I used the Roland CS-10Em binaural in ear microphones.

What I Have Recorded

People laughing chatting interior & exterior, doors closing, car engine start, pass by, cicadas, refrigerator drone sounds interior and from trucks, electronic saws to cut the fish, crushed ice shuffling, Spanish & English chatter. There is a little bit of wind pressure noise around the microphone in some parts of the recordings are present.
