where to buy fresh fish off the boat

Does anyone know of a place where I can buy freshly caught fish off the boat? something in the Miami/ Key biscayne/ North Miami beach area? I heard that Key Bicayne has a marina where you can go in the afternoon and buy fish from the fishermen, but I never got an exact location... some help please.

  1. Head toward the beach on the causway that runs by the cruise ships, I think 195, by the Parrot Jungle. There is a place to buy fresh fish by the helicoptors.

      You can buy fresh fish off the charter boats at Haulover marina on Collins Ave and about 102nd st in North Miami Beach, just north of Bal Harbour. The boats go out twice a day and their fish is as fresh as you can get, and the prices are very fair.

        The spot by the causeway on Watson's Island was a favorite of mine... it was called Casa Blanca and it is long gone... well, it has moved... I haven't been since... any reports?

        Casa Blanca Fish Market
        404 NW North River Dr, Miami, FL 33128

            Thanks Miami Danny! I'll check it out again soon!

      2. I liked their old location on Watson Island better but Casablanca still has the freshest fish at very reasonable prices. They also took over what used to be Joe's Seafood restaurant next door – nothing like eating fresh seafood right on the river!
