Where to buy branzino?

Hello all, I just signed up. I used to live in Europe and it was easy to find branzino in the markets. Who sells it on the Peninsula, or in SF?

      Whole Foods has it regularly.

        My whole foods had them in the past but they looked really old. I haven't seen any there for months.

        I've seen it at my favorite fishmonger, Tokyo Fish Market, in Berkeley.

          I've gotten it at Tokyo Fish a few times. Great on the grill.

          I also have had it special ordered from VerBrugge on College Ave in Oakland.

          it's a tasty fish.

          It's around, imported from Greece (farmed). You could probably special-order it from any upscale fish market.
