SD Wholesale Seafood Market??

carln Sep 23, 2006 06:24 PM

Is there one? Where do SD chefs and sushi chefs go to get their fresh fish? Is there a place in SD similar to International Marine Products in LA?

    I haven't been to that place in LA, but Catalina Offshore Products is a major wholesaler; they will sell to consumers in bulk through their website, and locals can go down to the warehouse to pick up instead of paying for delivery. http://catalinaop.com/

    They do have a minimum order; is that okay?

        Google Maps is the best.

        I can't speak from personal experience, but I hear that live uni is clearly superior. I'd get a whole urchin and pop it open in front of the guests. At only $15 for 3 lbs it would be cheaper than at most restaurants.
