You could try the Shop Rite in Hoboken & Bayonne. There used to be a good place on Danforth around Old Bergen but don't know if it is there anymore.

Try Morton Williams in Newport. The Asian Market that opened on 440 might have some wild caught, but they told me all their shrimp are farm raised.

Not sure if you're willing to commit to a biweekly CSF share, but Village Fishmonger has a drop off in Jersey City at the JC Food Coop.

Most if not everything is wild caught and pick up is at St Paul's Lutheran near Five Corners.

I have only seen that in certain high end seafood markets. You pay for it though ($18+ per lb for salmon). Over 50% of the seafood today is farm raised.

Big change from when I was a teenager working for a seafood wholesaler / retailer. Back then, the only farmed raised fish was Norwegian salmon.

I second Village Fishmonger. Super high quality. Locally caught. Pick it up right off 5 pts in Journal Square.

While I enjoy eating whole fish, and serve snappers and spot that way, porgies are a real bear to scale compared to them. When you've got 20lb of porgies to clean, filleting is FAR easier.

Blackened porgy fillets are awesome. You can anything to porgy that you would to tilapia or other white fish. I don't know why porgy has the bad rap, my grandfather fished LI his whole life and didn't fish them, maybe because there was a lot more blowfish, fluke and flounder then.

Be careful of the fish you touch and get from Chinatown and some Asian markets in the area due to an allergic reaction that causes skin rashes.

The fishmonger was very helpful when I went and what I got was fine. Speaking of porgies - it is IMEO a very under-rated fish, I suspect thanks to George Gershwin, seriously. Whole fish is the way to go:

I've also gotten fish at Morton-Williams which is very nice. WF Tribeca seems to be declining in range of selection.
BTW, I tip the person who cleans my fish - it's one of the only situations in a market or takeout where I think it is appropriate.

I have not gone there yet but what about the 555 fish market on Central Ave. in the Heights. It's near the corners of Franklin and Manhattan across from the Stop & Shop.

I know its crazy but the meat and fish at shoprite are really good -- if you go when there is someone good there they will even help you select the best pieces. If you know what to look for I get great stuff there


they don't have much organic though (some meat but no fish)
