From your net name and the anount of fish you eat I am guessing you live near the east coast, am I right? If so, I envy you. When we lived in Alexandria we could get so much more fish and there were more seafood restaurants.

I do indeed live near the east coast. Seafood isn't particularly inexpensive in the DC area but it's way less expensive here then it is in some of the landlocked states. I guess we're lucky in that sense.

When we visit the beach there is a ton of fish filets, crab, shrimp, scallops, etc. to choose from. It's great.

The (frozen) salmon, tilapia, cod and canned tuna that I eat is from Costco.

if nothing else, and I think I know excatly where you live, you have a much better selection even if it is frozen. I think that has to do with demographics as well and tastes. Here even though we do have a large population not raised in AR many have come from states that do not consider fish an everyday choice. I can remember living in Nova in the 80s and we had almost no Mexican food in the grocery stores plus few Mexican restaurants. Then a huge group of people, from Ca moved to the area.....Before we knew it there were lots of Mexican foods in the stores and Mexican restaurants started opening.

Nova is a much more diverse area now than it was in the 80's for sure and there is a wide variety of ethnic cuisine available now. Some of the grocery stores have amazing seafood counters but we tend to buy the frozen stuff at Costco just to keep costs down. But occasionally, I'll get fresh tuna steaks or mahi mahi from the seafood counter - always a treat.

Do you have lake fish available in AR?
