looking for fish heads for stock

I am looking forward to making a nice fish stock on the weekend and want to know if there are any recommendations on where I can get preferably some halibut fish heads from a fishmonger for stock. Does anybody know a good fishmonger in the Vancouver region that supplies good fish heads other than salmon?

  1. I'd try either The Lobster Man, or Seafood City (inside public market) on Granville Island.

    Or Seven Seas on W. 4th.

    Or any of the T&T Supermarkets.

    1. The daily catch cuts halibut every day, and you can get bones in the morning (around 10:30) for $1.50/lb. I really like that spot.

      1. Finest at Sea on Granville Island often have halibut. I asked for a lb of bones once there and for something like $3 they gave me a whole damn large halibut back. It must have weighed 6 lbs and had a whole lot of meat still on it. YMMV.
