A decades-old family fish market in Fairfield was featured in prime time on CNBC Tuesday as part of a new reality show.
Swanson's Fish Market hit some rough seas after a fire destroyed its building five years ago.
In an effort to get back on its feet, Swanson's agreed to be part of the reality show "The Profit."
Marcus Lemonis, the star and investor of the show, spent a lot of time at the fish market this summer taping the episode.
Store owner Gary Swanson says Lemonis is as blunt and shrewd as he appears on the show. He says things got contentious and heated at times, but some things were exaggerated for dramatic purposes.
Swanson says the TV production and cameras were overwhelming, but says he would do it over again if he had to.
The show aired Tuesday night at 10 p.m.
