GotGarlic - and I don't mean this offensively at all - but the fresh/frozen seafood issue isn't news - it's been above board for many years now.
While all seafood markets have been required for, like I said, years now, to label their offerings "previously frozen", you need to trust who you're buying your fish from regardless. Around here, luckily, there are labels on all the seafood as to whether it's "fresh" or "previously frozen", as well as the relatively new ruling as to the source.
Shrimp is rarely, if ever, labeled "previously frozen", because that goes without saying unless it's "head on" shrimp, which is rare in my area except for the Asian markets.
As far as finfish, you still have to be careful about buying frozen. While quality frozen fish can be cleaned & flash-frozen right on the boat, there still remains many outlets where fish is brought in after many days, cleaned & frozen by a middleman, & shipped to retail outlets. After thawing, those fish obviously aren't any better quality than the fresh fish on the ice tray.
Again - getting to know your retailer, knowing how to select good fish, & not being afraid to ask questions is key.
