shopping for bottarga in Seattle - Italian imports

Hi, new here. Does anyone know where I might find bottarga (salted fish roe, whole) in the Seattle area? Tried Delaurenti's last year. I talked to a manager type who 1) acted like no one had ever asked before, and 2) acted glad that somebody asked. He took my info and said he'd send me a note the next time they made an order. When I got the email, he said they could only get the grated stuff in a jar at a price much higher than what I could get online, so I passed (and got it online).

So, are there any Mediterranean import type stores that might carry bottarga/boutargue in Settle? I haven't been to Salumi, do they have much importy stuff besides their usual cured meats? I think I checked Pacific Food Importers, but no luck.
