Live Monterey Spotted Prawns

ML8000 May 31, 2009 06:43 PM

Anyone buy Monterey Spotted Prawns recently? Where do you buy them and how much?

I got some about a month ago at Lucky Seafood in Oakland Chinatown for $10/lb and they were very good. Since then the prices have gone up to $14-ish and they look kinda sad, as in not swimming around. I don't go by Lucky very often, so I thought I'd see what others have seen in price and places? 99 Ranch?

    I saw some live ones at 99 Ranch in Richmond - two days ago - think the price was $13.99 ?
    The tank wasn't very crowded and they looked pretty active.
