Buying a whole fish today in SD where?

Is there a fish vendor at the North Park farmers market? I haven't tried to buy a whole fish in a while and I can't remember seeing them at either Blue Water or Bay Park Fish Co? Do they have them? Does the Fishery in PB? I haven't been there in 10 years and we just moved to Crown Point so they would be convenient.
Also, I would prefer to avoid Whole Foods and Bristol Farms.

  1. I can recommend Point Loma Seafoods. They are a restaurant and fish market.

      Try the 99 Ranch in on Clairmont Mesa, I've been pleased with the quality of the hand selected fish.

        Other asian markets (Lucky Seafood, Seafood City) are also good places to get a whole fish.

    2. Call Point Loma Sea Food and see what they have. They will even cut portion sizes for you.

      1. Any of the Asian supermarket chains will work as will Point Loma Sea Foods or failing that you could just wait by the landing at H&M Landing or Seaforth and offer to buy the fresh caught fish (blue fin tuna are in season right now) from the fisherman coming off the boat. I'd rather just take a full day boat and go catch my own though.

        1. Catalina Offshore Products will fit the bill. I've always had good luck with them. Give them a call and see what's fresh.
