“It’s been amazing to see the reaction from people here,” Mr Collins told News.co.uk.
“We’re in a city, a place where there’s lots of people in the street.”
The response to the fish is really, really great, and I’d never even seen anything like this.
“Mr Collins’ favourite food is the fish and chicken, with his wife Annie, who has the name Annie, also making appearances.
He has been a regular visitor to the market since the artist began to sell the fish at his shows.”
He’ll be here for about five minutes and then go and have his own little meal and then come back,” he said.”
Then I’ll come back and have a different meal and a different kind of fish and the next thing you know he’s in the market again.

The Fishmarket has attracted hundreds of thousands to the street each day, with fans lining up to buy the artist’s signature catch, which is often sold in small batches.”
I think we’ve had two shows in Melbourne this year, and there’s been about 10,000 people in line up,” Mr Johnson said.
