    If you were to try anywhere, go to Seafood City on Olive or some of the other Asian markets west along Olive between North and South and I-170. The have a lot of fresh fish and live tanks with everything from crab (blue and Dungeness), lobster, carp, eel, frogs, turtles, tilapia, clams (mahogany, little neck, geoduck etc), mussels, snails...along with all of the other whole fish, fresh and frozen products.

      Seafood City is indeed the most likely spot, but take caution - the tanks are often a mess.

      You could, I suppose, call Bob's Seafood, easily the best seafood market in the city. They may (or may not) be able to special order for you. Worth a shot.
