Where to buy fresh fish, monkfish in particular?

Do any of you San Franciscans have any advice for where to buy good fresh fish in the city? I'm hoping to make monkfish tonight. Thanks!

  1. I've used the following several times for the freshest fish.
    Ports Seafood, Inc
    The Fresh Fish Company
    1440 Bancroft Avenue
    San Francisco, CA 94124
    (415) 593-8080
    (415) 593-9393

    Ports Seafood Inc.
    1440 Bancroft Ave, San Francisco, CA

    1. Note that monkfish is on the Seafood Watch "avoid" list.

        Not surprising, from the look of that head!
