Where to buy fresh mackerel in 5 boroughs

arthurhur | Oct 24, 2013 03:29 PM

I've regularly buy mackerel (Atlantic) from Korean groceries, but am always frustrated about the quality. It is previously frozen from Norway, and displays unappealing characteristics - brown gills, black blood line, bloody or cloudy eyes.

I would normally just steer clear of it altogether, but my wife loves it and insists on eating it several times a week.

Does anyone know where I can buy fresh mackerel in New York? The New Fulton Fish Market does not list mackerel in their product list, along with most of the other large markets.

Any leads would be much appreciated.
