Los Angeles Fish Market Sound Effects recorded in 2017

Are you a sound enthusiast or a sound designer in search of original and exciting sound effects? This sound library takes you on a journey to the San Pedro Fish Market in Los Angeles, one of the city’s best-kept secrets.

Every Saturday morning, the market comes to life with the sounds of laughter, chatter, doors closing, car engines starting, and more. With a unique blend of Spanish and English chatter and the buzz of electronic saws cutting fish, the market is a hub of activity.

To capture this Los Angeles Fish Market Sound Effects Library, I woke up at 2:30 am and drove to the market, located along Signal Street, just a couple of hundred meters away from Warehouse 01.

Using the Zoom H6 and Rode NTG4+ for exterior ambience, and the Roland CS-10Em binaural in-ear microphones for interior recordings, I captured the sounds of people laughing, chatting, and the buzz of the market.

You’ll even hear the soothing drone of refrigerators, the shuffling of crushed ice, and the hum of cicadas in the background.
So whether you’re a sound enthusiast or a sound designer, join us on this audio adventure and discover the bustling sounds of the San Pedro Fish Market in Los Angeles.

Be sure to check out more sounds on our Ambience page and this Thailand Market Ambience Sound Library.
