where can i buy fresh seafood in san diego

Thomas Zerbarini: Okay, here is my big secret for fresh seafood and sushi at home. This place has the BEST mail order sushi and fresh seafood bar none! For small or big parties, try the sushi once--totally worth it!

When it comes to buying fresh seafood, the options are countless as to where you can source it. You can buy from small grocery stores, big box stores or even buy online. If you want the freshest, highest-quality sustainably caught seafood that money can buy, you go right to the source. There's no question that the absolute best place to buy fresh fish in San Diego is the Tuna Harbor Dockside Market.

San Diego has a long and rich history of fishing. In the 1970s, San Diego was the "tuna capital of the world."We still have the best seafood in the world right here in San Diego. You can buy it right from the fishermen who caught it, and that has huge benefits (price, freshness, supporting the local economy, health).

Tuna Dockside Market is where the chef's who really care about the source of their seafood shop for their restaurants. It requires flexibility, as the "daily catch" really does change from day to day. When a restaurant changes their menu daily... If they are stuck in a giant more corporate menu that almost never changes; they likely have to buy from a large distributor who can guarantee certain product no matter where it is sourced.

I don't know if the fish markets inside a restaurant are fresh/over priced? Any hints or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hmmm? I won't argue "grades" because I have not seen grades of fish listed anywhere. I am talking about fish that is priced well and tastes good and is not frozen! I am not sure you have shopped in these stores so I don't know how you know all this unless you are in the industry. To the average person who buys every day and doesn't freeze anything the quality/taste/freshness etc. is quite good!

San Diego is a seafood capital with fresh and fabulous coastal cuisine. The local chefs have a wealth of treasures from the sea to choose from right in their backyard.
