Where to buy fresh, raw octopus, and abalone?

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

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

      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?

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