The closest real supermarket is a 30 minute drive away and while they have a lot of products, including live lobsters, clams and mussels, there are a lot of things they don't stock. To get better access to seafood, I have to drive over an hour away, one way, to a fish store, so a lot of the time I make do with what is local.

I've noticed in the stores here that there are a lot less fish varieties than there used to be and there are signs up all over the place about sustainable resources. In terms of fresh fish in my case that seems to mean sole, pickerel (walleye to you), sometimes red snapper, and cod. Not much variety in frozen fish either. No more orange roughy. No more sea bass, no more skate wings.

Not that I'm against sustainable resources, but judging by all the disappearing varieties I've noticed in the average grocery store, either something really alarming is going on, or they are having their customers on.

And, Sam's Club has a cheap bag of frozen mix including shellfish as well which always add a lot of flavor to a stew. I toss the calamari pieces.

Really, a stick of butter, some lobster base (like Minor's above) a little white wine and a bag of Sam's mixed frozen fish peices and you're done.

Ooooh. walleye and snapper and sole. that would make a nice stew.

I like fish dishes, seafood and seafood chowders but fish stew . Seems like it might be quite fishy. Please do post and let us know how it turns out.
