Where to get seafood - and know what you're getting?

Basilette | Oct 21, 2009 08:56 AM

I'd like to find a reliable place in town that carries seafood that comes from sustainable stock - and where the employees are knowledgeable about the product. I love my seafood, but I really want to be responsible about what I buy, and to do that, you often have to know where the fish is from, whether if was farmed or wild-caught, and what fishing methods were used. Central Market has a wide selection of fish and shellfish, but the employees there don't always know exactly where the items are from, or what fishing methods are used to harvest them. I've tried out Quality Seafood, but even there I got really discouraged by the presence of Chilean sea bass. Dude, no one should be selling that stuff. It's like eating unicorns. Anyone know of a better seafood seller in Austin?
