The wife brought home some Talapia from Harris Teeter today. I asked her if she read the lable... "it was on sale". Asked her if she remembered the big brew-ha about the imported fish from China a few months back..."Yes ".
Well darn if it wasn't the exact stuff. I think i'm going to feed it to my cats ( their not high on my list ) , bad part is , i'm out $4.75 :(

SO, my question is... what / where do you get fresh fish ? (besides your catch )

Local fish market, most of them have a good reputation on keeping fresh fish. Thats going to be something you;ll have to find in your area.

Tight lines <*)))))>{

ghost - there use to be a great fishmonger in downtown Durham near the shops in the old tobacco warehouses. That was a number of years ago so I'm not sure if he is still there. He had wonderful, fresh seafood with a wide selection on most days. Take a look in the yellow pages.

Hello Ghost. Talapia in a lot of cases are actually raised here in the US in fish farms. They are actually a means of cleaning the waste water in fish farms that raise other types of fish. I have eaten them from various markets including Wal-Mart and Harris Teeter no problems yet. If you are worried about the fish being from China though just make sure they are the domestic raised fish. Good luck.

That's what i'm looking for, a couple local places someone can vouch for. We go to Raleigh once in a while, i would have no problem stopping in and picking up some fillets for dinner that night or next. OR as it is down here... FIL-A :)

I simply dont buy fish... I might order some in a restraunt, especially blackend grouper/redfish or black tip... but I never buy fish from a supermarket. We just go catch'm.

Only sea food I do buy would be crawdads, shrimp or my wife's Massachussetts lobster addiction...

I'm with you Dave - I catch my own for the most part. That's one of the nice parts to living so close to the ocean. Although we do occasionally buy a wild caught Copper River Salmon fillet or two from Alaska. And we buy a bunch of local caught shrimp each fall for the freezer.

Yep, Dave and Topsail, you are a couple guys i was thinking of when i said " besides your catch". hopefully soon i can save my allowance to go get some big fish for the freezer. I cooked the last of my fish from Illinios a couple days ago. One pic is a cheek from a sauger and then the final product, minus the first 7-8 pieces that goes to the cook. ;)
