Fish Mongers in Aventura?

Hey all. I've visiting the Aventura area for about 10 days and I'm lucky enough to have a kitchen to cook in.
Being a chef myself, fresh seafood is really important to me, and being by the ocean, I want to eat it.
Is there any good real fish mongers in the general area? Ideally, I want to avoid buying from grocery stores, and that includes Whole Foods.
Thanks for the help.

  1. Captain Jim's Seafood, 12950 West Dixie Highway, North Miami, FL 33161 (305) 892-2812 sells fish from a display case in front, and/or fries it up -- perfectly -- in back. Eat in, or pick your favorites and take 'em home to cook yourself. I bought some delicious triple tail from them, sauteed it simply in butter and garlic, and enjoyed it.

    Eating in, the service can be a little iffy, and you're gonna go there for the food, not the decor.

    1. Once again, I love Triar for the freshest and very reasonably priced and great selection of seafood. Located in east Hollywood, so not too far from Aventura.

        Great fish right off the boats at the Haulover charter fishing
        boat dock. Go south on A1A to about 106th street. Make a right at the traffic light. There is a sign that directs you to the charter boats.It should be a 10 minute drive from Aventura if you take the Lehman causeway.

          Any ideas where we can go to see Boats that have caught any Trophy fish without driving to Miami.
