Where can I buy affordable fresh local fish?

Hey there, haven't been in the bay area for long and would love to know more about the fresh fish scene :)

Where does the local catch land / come from?

What is the local catch / how do I find out about this and what's in season and what's sustainable here?

Where is the best and cheapest place to buy fresh, local fish in San Francisco?

I have not had any success in finding wet fish shops that are not incredibly expensive (like the Ferry Building, or Whole Foods fish counter). I have bought fresh fish on the market in Filmore and Civic Center, but packed in ice for too long, doesn't taste fresh when you get it home...

I'm missing good fish! Especially whole fresh mackerel....

Look forward to finding out more from the Chow Hound experts!
