    I haven't been there in a while, but I used to buy the freshest fish at Two Bills Seafood. This is at the end of a side street, off Griffin road west of I-95 (near Royal India -- good Indian food).
    4501 SW 44TH Ave, Fort Lauderdale
    (954) 583-1280

    There's also a fishmonger on Atlantic Blvd in Pompano Beach, right next to the intracoastal. I can't think of the name, but they have good fish, too, and are very kind to the pelicans in the area. (They had a fundraiser going on last year to help injured pelicans.)

      The place on Atlantic is called Mr. Fish. A little pricey though.

      I'm a regular at Oceans Harvest located at 953 East Oakland Park Boulevard,Oakland Park. (Telephone: (954) 565-2713)

      Always fresh and always a good selection, they have never disappointed.

        Oceans Harvest has changed hands and is now a Gourmet shop, however, they do sell fresh fish. I am a big big fan of the fish at Whole Foods on Federal in Fort Lauderdale across the street from Barnes and Noble.

          - Capt Mike's Seafood in Davie - 441 and Griffin Rd. I love their lobster cakes that you buy and just cook up similar to a crabcake - yum.
          - Doris Italian Market has a beautiful looking seafood dept in the Plantation store. Haven't tried it as it's new.

            The "Fish Peddler" on east Commercial Blvd. (one block west of Bayview). Always 7 or 8 varieties of fresh fish along with great mussels and tiny "spaghetti" clams not often found in our markets. Also a good selection of frozen seafood items including both Manhattan and New England clam chowders and fish stock, again not often found in our local markets. These along with the usual shrimp, stone crab claws, lobsters, and prepared crab cakes and stuffed clams make for a much better than average fish store.
