Where's best retail fresh fish in Houston?

What's your vote for the best place to buy fresh fish?

Here are some of the places I've tried. I'm looking for new ones, however.

Whole Foods is where I go the most. I think it's gone down a little in recent months. I like the way their salmon is labelled so that I can choose wild over farmed salmon.

Central Market impressed me when I went there a year ago. Some people tell me it's gone way downhill.

Hong Kong Market, way out on Bellaire Blvd, looks great. A whole wall of fish and tanks, with several fish cleaning stations, just like in Chicago or NY.

The fish store on Brompton south of Holcombe. JR's may be the name.

I've seen writeups for Connie's, but the one near the airport didn't impress me.

I bought salmon and tilapia, both farmed of course, at Sam's this weekend. It was excellent for the price. Very fresh and very cheap.

Others?
