The Old Fish Market, located in the old town center, is the oldest fish market in Miri. In the old days, its location at the river side is the most suitable spot for landing fish caught from the rivers and seas, to be weighed and sold to the local populace.

Nowadays, with the river having been filled in (the shore line and peninsular have been changed for the land reclamation of the Marina Bay) it is no longer located by the river, but plenty of fresh fish are still being brought in from the fishing boats and sold there. There are a variety of fish and sea creatures sold there, and you can even find small sharks and manta rays sold.

The market is due to be moved to a new location soon. The current building may be demolished soon.
