Manchester Arndale indoor market has a pretty good selection of fresh fish. Depending upon the catch they cover everything from shark to halibut to oysters and scallops. When I was on Bury market the other week I was very impressed with the wide selection of fresh fish there was to be had from the indoor fish market.  If you have transport and don't mind getting up early, you can buy anything that you need from the main wholesale fish fruit and veg Smithfield Market, Ashton old road Openshaw. They sell to the public in reasonably small quantities.

I've heard good things about Bury Market, although I've not been yet.  I believe the trams go there too?

Hi. Cupcake,
 
Although I have been to Bury dozens of times I had never been onto the market until recently. I was very pleasantly surprised to see the vast array of goods for sale, with probably the best selection of meat and fish stalls collectively that I have seen for a long time. I went on a sunny day in the school holidays and it was packed, both indoors and out. There were coach parties from all over the North there. There are plenty of good inexpensive eating establishments in close proximity to the market. I went by Metro tram from Victoria station, it took about 15/20 minutes and the terminus is just across the road from the market. I think that the main market is only open on Thursday Friday Saturday. There is a web site telling you all you need to know about it.

My friend's mum goes there - says the quality is excellent, and the prices are low.  I keep meaning to go and browse, but something or other always gets in the way.  C'est la vie, eh?  ::)

 :o  Snails and frogs' legs?  Not whilst there's a single lentil left in my larder!  Patisserie, on the other hand, or that distinctive breadcrust..... yeah, that could tip the balance in the very near future!  If you're there on Friday morning and there's a lady with a strawberry custard tart in each hand and a baguette under her arm, come over and say hi!  ;D

Bolton has more fresh water fish than Bury, not a great lover of fresh water fish. Taste a bit earthy to me. Trout is about my limit.
 
I wouldn't mind trying Crayfish, as we are now swompped with the Americana signal caryfish that are killing off our British white crayfish.
