Default Where to buy Wild Salmon in Phoenix?

Does anyone have good reccomendations on where to buy Wild Salmon here in the Phoenix area? I'm looking for fresh Wild Salmon. Please list stores you have bought from. How much is it a pound?
Is frozen Wild Salmon good for you or no?
I know farmed Salmon is not good for you- I won't buy it anymore.

Thanks.

As long as look at the label, Whole Foods Markets usually have decent Wild fish. be careful though because you may think it's healthy because they will say it's organic, but it will still be farm raised and can still contain plenty of diseases or bacteria.

Trader Joe's has frozen wild salmon. Also, Costco and Sams Club have frozen wild salmon. Frozen wild salmon is just as good for you as fresh salmon.

Some of the other grocerry stores, such as AJ's, Bashas, Frys and Walmart have it fresh, especially during the salmon run season in Alaska, which goes for most of the summer.

Farmed salmon is worthless and I never buy it.

Thank you everyone for your replies.
Keep them coming as I can use all the advice I can get.

altus2006,
Thanks, I knew Costco carried frozen farmed salmon but I didn't know they carried frozen wild salmon.
I suppose they probably carry fresh wild salmon as well.

I would think there would be a fish market close.

Good for you (maybe), but bad for planet earth. Salmon is declining from over-fishing and habitat loss. Don't eat it or buy farmed.

My ex Girlfriend was an awesome seafood cook (now hires cooks for her and her kids). She liked Costco's Salmon. She also liked the Asian market at the Chinese Cultural Center on 44th st to buy fish from. We'd usually eat Salmon or Tilapia though. She taught me how to prepare Tilapia but I forgot about that over the years...

Farmed salmon is worthless and should be avoided. It is fed fish food like corn, wheat, soybean meal, cow meal and other garbage that a fish never eats.

One of the purposes of eating salmon is to get the omega-3 oil which is very heart healthy. Farmed salmon does not have this because it does not eat the plant foods in the open ocean that the wild eat to make the omega-3's.

The Alaska salmon industry has tons of hatcheries that release salmon into the open ocean and the risk of salmon disappearing is rather remote.

Costco and Sams Club have both types. I always buy the boxes which have "Wild" written on the front of the boxes. They are in a marinade which is quite tasty. They come with 6 salmon fillets per box.

I have never seen fresh wild salmon in either store, but I may have just missed it. I know both places have fresh farmed salmon.

Recently I also bought wild canned salmon in Costco which was boned and skinned. It is also very good.
