Dayboat fresh/catch of the day?

Hi chowhounders,
I had a question about the labeling of menu items as dayboat fresh or catch of the day. I stopped by a seafood joint after seeing a movie with the Lady last night (Sunday) and saw that their menu dated for that day listed some items as dayboat fresh. As a former employee of a meat and seafood department, it's my understanding that there are no fresh seafood deliveries in the Twin Cities on Sundays and it would be impossible to have dayboat offerings on a Sunday.

Am I wrong about fish deliveries or the meaning of dayboat? Are there any kind of restrictions on labeling menu items as catch of the day or dayboat fresh? I assume any seafood I'm eating on Sunday arrived in town on Saturday morning unless I caught it myself, but it would be cool if there was a restaurant who had a line (yuk,yuk) on fresh fish on Sundays.
