Where would you recommend me to buy fish (best prices in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or the Bronx)?

Not exactly looking for best quality but looking more along the lines of prices as Im a student who still depends on his mom for money. Im training for a bodybuilding competition in 3 months so my diet will consist of a lot of fish. Seafoodwise, I intend to only cook swordfish, halibut, salmon, and an occasional fresh tuna salad. I will be sticking mainly with these fish for the next 3 months and will be doing a lot of pre-freezing meals as I have school. I am okay with buying frozen seafood btw if it means getting a better deal. I usually shop at Whole Foods but they dont always have what I want. :( I heard Citarella is AMAZING but apparently they're more expensive. Not really sure. Where can I buy this fish but at a good price? I imagine Chinatown is a great place but I cant read those Chinese signs they always expect everyone to read. Im willing to shop in the Bronx and Brooklyn as well. If it means better prices then im fine with it. A lot of this is going straight to the freezer anyways.
