SD Wholesale Seafood Market??

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?

  1. 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.

    They do have a minimum order; is that okay?

      Where is the warehouse located. I am going to pick up some sea urchin. Awesome site Joseph.

        Google Maps is the best.

        Double true!

        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.
