Where to buy fresh, raw octopus, and abalone?

Haven't had either in a LONG time. Willing to pay almost anything.

    Tokyo Fish in Berkeley often has abalone -- but not in tanks (as implied in the old thread).

      For Octopus, Japanese and Korean markets. Koreana Plaza in Oakland usually has octopus and their prices are relatively low.

      Abalone:

        I was at Koreana Plaza in Oakland last week and they had small frozen foreign sourced Abalone at reasonable prices.

        It depends on what you are going to do with it?
