Whiting, baby flounder and Smelt
Need these for a Spanish fish fry. Any suggestion on where to find?
Smelts are pretty much an east coast fish. Maybe Point Loma Seafood can order them for you. As for flounder, Pacific coast sole should accommodate you.

Smelt are from the Great Lakes. Caught in the spring. Because they are frozen over now.
Flounder are from the Northern Atlantic Ocean (fluke are like flounder and can be caught in the summer in the Pacific).
Whiting are in the East Atlantic and Mediterranean.
None will be found fresh here.
If you are in coastal North County call Pelly's Fish Market, they will be able to get you what ever you need.
