    Maybe the Japanese Market on the 79th street causway
    I buy alot of fish at Casablanca fish market on the river but Ive never bought tuna there. You should call ahead to see if they have tuna.
    Also, I find the tuna at Fresh Market in the Grove to have excellent quality tuna as does Epicure (but epicure is quite expensive)

      Japanese Market does have high-quality, frozen tuna. I've never used the tuna but I have used their salmon before for tartare and if thawed properly it's very high quality. I've not been but Triar Seafood in Hollywood (?) is often recommended.

        I have gotten pretty much everything at Triar and the quality is always amazing. If they have it, it's first rate. Each week they have a list of what's available for that week. If you call ahead they will be happy to fax it to you.

      I also was just given a tip by a friend who goes to the key biscayne marina on weekend mornings and buys fish from the fishing boats (near the old Sundays location).
