Fishmonger apprentices may work in independent high street fishmongers, supermarket fish counters or even mobile fishmonger vans.

A fishmonger apprentice also needs excellent customer service and selling skills to develop good relationships with their customers. The apprenticeship helps build a broad range of skills, making apprentices highly valued employees. Talented fishmonger apprentices may go on to run or even own a fishmongering business.
