Love tuna, salmon and crab, but am somewhat skeptical of the stuff you can obtain in the supermarket due to all of the warnings out there about the poisons and toxins that may be in fish.

As a result, I have lately been looking into getting my salmon and tuna from some of the smaller canneries that are based out of Alaska. Prices look like they are roughly 1/2 to 1/3 more expensive than what you would find in the Supermarket, but given that I probably only eat this stuff once or twice a month, I don't have an issue paying extra for something that might be better tasting and better for you.

I don't. So I don't get it from anywhere.

Your supermarket doesn't say where it comes from? They must list where the product is from.

You could also ask the guy behind the counter. I asked about some Mahi filets and he showed me the box they were shipped in.

What fish I eat: grilled salmon.

Where it comes from: some kind of aquatic environment, I suppose.

Depending on who is working the counter not all the time, but I am also talking about the pouches of tuna and salmon you can buy from bumblebee, chicken of the sea, etc.. which i will often use for a quick lunch

There is a local fish farm we use. We can get Bass, Catfish, and tilapia.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 8:29:41 AM EDT
Mmmm……salmon. Sockeye, wild-caught from Alaska. From the local grocery store.

Stopped by an old buddy's house on the way home from the range, I was bemoaning my lack of time for fishing and hunting endeavors, and the sad state of my freezer.

He allowed as how he needed to create some space in his for the upcoming archery season and pressed some venison and fish from last season on me.

Ate the fish for dinner last night, it was great, giant fillets out of the St. Johns

Steamed shrimp, tuna in sushi, and an occasional crab cake sandwich is about the only seafood I eat. I don't eat anything from China. Beyond that, I don't care.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 8:33:07 AM EDT
Love that cesspool talapia from china. raised in the finest sewage china has.


No not really. In fact if it's not from the U.S. I pass. On any fish or seafood.

flounder, red drum, speckled trout, bluefish, spanish mackerel, mullet. I catch them from the ocean, sounds, and rivers
walleye and perch are caught by people from back home in MI and given to me when I make it back there.
I will never buy fish from a store. Not because of some idealogical reason, its just that I'd rather go out and catch it. Same thing with red meat. Very rarely will I buy beef, and if I do, its just ground beef. Everything else comes from deer I kill.

Local farmers market has an awesome selection.

I ususally go for the Scottish farm raised Salmon, for 10.99lb it is the best salmon I ever had.

They get Cod, Trout, Grayling all kinds of good stuff, none of that Basa or Tilapia bullshit.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 8:39:15 AM EDT
Fresh speckled trout and redfish, all caught by my family and Me.

I get flash frozen tuna from the supermarket. Slow thaw it, rub it with black pepper, cook it rare, drown it in ponzu sauce and serve it with raw onion. It is actually pretty good.

No problems so far, except for a persistent facial tick and some numbness in the extremities from nerve damage.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 8:46:23 AM EDT
Salmon, halibut, tuna, catfish, perch, and Kokanee caught by myself and family. Never have bought fish. Always caught it.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 8:47:57 AM EDT
If my day on the water is more drinking and less catching, I eat whatever the store has.

There are a couple of guys that sell fish out of a freezer in the back of a pickup. They don't exactly give off the most professional vibe so the first time buying was a real leap of faith. Turned out their product was quality and we have since bought fish from them many times. They travel around and sell door to door so if you are not home when they come you're out of luck. Tuna and scallops are my favourite.

Star-Kist, Bumblebee, Chicken of the Sea.

Canned tuna is the only fish I eat, and shrimp the only waterbug.

Perch, Lake Michigan and local small lakes. Caught by customers. I haven't had a chance to get out this year, yet.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 8:53:30 AM EDT
Redfish today. Flounder later this week. Not fresh caught because i don't live on the coast and i hate that.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 8:58:41 AM EDT
Red salmon. From my brother. He caught so many salmon dipnetting he has no space in his freezer. Filleted it yesterday, will bake it tonight.

You guys catch strippers in the St. Johns? Holy shit, I'm packing my gear now.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 9:03:10 AM EDT
My local market lists the country of origin and if it was wild caught or farm raised. I stick to wild caught US fish if I'm buying.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 9:03:12 AM EDT
I only eat fish that I catch.

Bluegills from my friends farm pond. Hatchery stocked rainbow trout from ponds and lakes around here.

White and yellow perch, croakers, rockfish, spot, redfish, and catfish from the Chesapeake and other rivers and creeks around here.

I also catch my own crabs. But I do buy shrimp from the store because we just don't have them here.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 9:12:05 AM EDT
Grouper and Cobia out of Homosassa, Florida. Dolphin out of Marathon, Florida. Be on the lookout for fish from openblue.com they are open ocean farm raising Cobia in Miami and it is decent quality. It's already in Publix supermarkets around here.

I don't have to buy any fish.

OMG! Your buddy has been eating strippers???

I hope he's had his shots...

Had a few 1lb tilapia I pulled out of my Aquaponic system this weekend. They made excellent fish tacos!

Out of the ocean, where do you think Coho come from?

I am putting some Gulf Coast Whiting on the grill this evening.
Place them on a bed of onions and pour lemon juice all over them and then wrap them up in aluminum foil.
Emmm good!!

Caught them a few weeks ago in Galveston bay.

From here or one of the dozens of places just like it around here.

I rarely buy supermarket seafood other than canned salmon or tuna.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 9:38:00 AM EDT
Sand bass, crappie, and blue catfish caught by my family and friends in local lakes. Cod fillets from the local butchers shop on occasion but heck if I know where they are from.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 9:42:48 AM EDT
Tonight I shall dine upon croaker taken from the Chesapeake bay. Was hoping for a flounder in the mix but no such luck.

Just gives me a reason to try again...
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 9:44:14 AM EDT
Bluegill and bass out of our pond, Salmon, steelhead, and Perch outta the lake and river.

Why pay for overpriced stuff?

Link Posted: 8/10/2014 10:27:50 AM EDT
Out of local lakes, rivers, or creeks. If you buy frozen fish from a store, and think it's just fine, you're doing it wrong.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 10:43:07 AM EDT
Generally whatever I catch from fishing. Usually flounder, speckled trout, grouper, snapper, redfish, drum, mahi, or tuna.

+1. I buy it in the summer, I buy it cheap and I stack it deep.

Theres a big difference between wild sockey and that farm raised stuff.

I buy everything else at the gulf direct from the boats. Shrimp, tuna, snapper, grouper, amberjack, tilefish, etc; pretty much whatever is freshest and recommended by the smelly guy with the knife
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 10:55:53 AM EDT
From the store, usually just tuna. But we go to the coast pretty frequently and often have fresh seafood while we're there.

Frozen Hake loin fillets from Costco. Great taste and texture. They are vacuum sealed so store in the freezer forever.

We usually brown them in butter then put atop a salad.
