Does anyone know where I can get large cans of fish - salmon, mackeral, sardines, as long as it isn't tuna anything will do. I've seen 15oz cans for sale in the States (Chicken of the Sea and Crown Prince brands) - does anyone know if these sizes are available here? I need large amounts of fish, as cheap as possible, human grade. (it's for my dogs, I prepare their food myself and it's getting to be a pain in the ass constantly having to haul many small cans of salmon back from Provigo). Also open to non-canned large amounts of fish if anyone knows of any agreeable fishmongers. :)

    Have you tried Aubut?

      I'd try to make arrangements with a fishmonger who might sell you scraps.

      as for your canned query, I'd do what kpz said, try Aubut & Mayrand. Also, once in a while there are deals on packaged frozen fish at Loblaws/provigo, etc. It's from China and I wouldn't eat it, but I would feed it to a dog.

        Yeah, if I can't find a reliable source of canned, I'm going to try and do just what you mentioned (find a fishmonger who'll sell me scraps for cheap). I almost put 'no 'products of China' in my initial post but didn't because I didn't want to come off assholey. I'm not saying i would NEVER feed it, but if I can go without something from China, I will. You know any kindly fishmongers, btw? :)
