Where to buy live fish (to steam at home)?

Jon914 | Mar 18, 2013 11:52 PM

I live in the South Bay (so SF's Chinatown is out of reach).

I like buying live fish home to steam, but I want something nicer than the usual catfish, tilapia, cabazon or black bass you find at Ranch / Marina but don't necessarily want to go to a restaurant and fork over $30-$40 a pound for it.

In the past, Tin Tin in Cupertino used to carry a lot of exotic fish (such as hung lung, my favorite), but closed up years back. Are there any other places like that that carry a decent selection of live fish?
