Fishmonger not too far from Forest Hills?

Yesterday I decided to do some cebiche. Cooking it is the easy part. The tough one is finding fish fresh enough to be eaten raw (or more precisely marinated in lime for about 15 minutes). I visited three large fishmongers in Sutphin Blvd, Jamaica and nothing came up to standard. A couple of Queens Boulevard stores were no better. Then I went back to Forest Hills and in my second attempt (the Korean lady near Ascan) I found a very fresh sole that ended up as a beautiful cebiche. I actually like that store. It is a bit on the expensive side, but it is impeccably clean, a big plus in fishmongers. Problem is that the carry a very small variety and all you can see is filleted fish. I prefer to buy the whole animal and have it filleted. There are so many things to do with the bones and the head...
Is anyone familiar with another clean fishmonger, with a larger variety of fish and seafood anywhere in or let's say no more that a 20 minutes drive from Forest Hills?
