Do you ask to smell the fish?

When you're buying fish from the market, do you ask to smell it first before they wrap it up? I purchased some salmon the other day from the supermarket (have never had a bad experience at this place) and cooked it up that night. When my husband unwrapped it, we knew it smelled a little "off" but we were starving and excited for salmon so he grilled it anyway. Well...we couldn't even take one bite, out in the trash it went. I always feel weird asking to "sniff" (something about sticking my nose in it) the fish but if I had... I would NEVER had purchased it...what do you do?
