Affordable fish in the Concord, MA area?

While I loving my new suburban lifestyle, one of the adjustments I'm finding hard to swallow is the outrageous price for fish. In Somerville, I could even walk into the local Shaws and find reasonably fresh seafood and pay around $6 a lb for Salmon on sale. Now only a 30 min drive away, all the fish is in the double digits per pound ($8 a lb for Tilapia! The bargain fish!!) at both the grocery store and the fish markets.

Why is the 1/2hr drive such a big deal that it sends fish prices through the roof? Is there someplace in the Concord area ( Feel free to offer options in surrounding towns) that I am missing that doesn't charge an arm and a leg for fish? I am currently buying in bulk at the Costco in Waltham and freezing it, but I'm hoping there's another solution out there :)
