Where to buy Unagi that isn't precooked?

So it's Unagi season and I need to get some of that good ol' stamina-strengthening food.

Normally I buy the packaged Unagi Kabayaki at Marukai or Mitsuwa, which is delicious, cheap, and easy to make. But now I'm trying to be a little bit more mindful of eating sustainably and eating well, and the idea of eating Chinese-farmed Eel with a sauce mixture that came from who-knows-where... doesn't seem to be helping me get closer to that.

(Not to pick on Chinese farmers; they make some of the best green tea and oolong tea in the world, but I am suspect about their fishing practices)

Is there anywhere here in the LA area where can I order sustainably raised unagi? Or at the very least, without already being grilled and doused in that delicious but probably unhealthy sauce?
