Chinatown Fish Markets

Is anyone familiar with these markets? I walked thru Chinatown yesterday and was amazed by the variety and low cost. I didn't buy anything though. I wasnt sure of the quality, and it seemed like some of the fish was treated with complete disregard to cleanliness. For example, mussels were displayed already shelled and sitting on a bed of ice in the open air. Filets were being slapped down bare-handed on layers of ice, again with nothing covering them. Does anyone have any experience as a buyer at these places?
