Default Fresh seafood - fish market?

I'm looking for some place with a good selection of really fresh seafood. Can someone suggest a good seafood market in the SW Durham/Chapel Hill area?

For local seafood:

Tony Robinsons is a little shack in Carrboro, one block back from main street behind Armadillo Grill. Has odd hours (maybe open only thurs thru sat).

Red and White store in durham on University, about a mile towards downtown from . Pretty non-descript building, go early saturday morning for best selection. Also a good butcher.

Aside from these, Weaver Street Market and Wholefoods both have some local seafood as well.

Which of these stores is closest to Raleigh, and easiest to find for someone who still doesn't know her way around?

Where is Whole Foods?

I've been to the last three on Mrs. Steel's list, but none of them qualify as North Raleigh or Wake Forest. The closest to North Raleigh is Whole Foods in Ridgewood Shopping Center, but even that is a bit of a drive. If I were specifically driving to get to one of the stores, I'd nominate Sea Depot or Grand Asia. I liked Capital Seafood (and it is close to the Farmer's Market), but they had a lot more freshwater fish and I'm more of a saltwater person. Sea Depot has great prices. Grand Asia has a pretty good stock of live fish; my kids like to go there just to see the fish tank (we hit the train by Tom's Train Shop in the South Hills "mall" then go the Grand Asia and look at the fish).

Be sure to ask where the seafood came from and if it has ever been frozen. Ask when their deliveries come in. If it has never been frozen and is being delivered on ice then I would encourage you to show up on delivery day. Fresh fish sitting in a display counter for just one day can alter the taste and texture dramatically.
