Trader Joe's has decent frozen fish fillets. I'm not a fan of what they offer that is "stuffed" or pre-seasoned but have had fantastic luck with their other flash-frozen fish.

"Fresh Fish" I doubt any of you dont know how to tell if a fish is fresh enough to eat if it still has its head on,for me 2 fish that should not be eaten within 24 hrs of tacking the hook out are Hadock and Cod, a Dover sole needs 3 to 4 days in the fridge otherwise it eats like cardboard. Squid, cuttlefish and octopus improve in the freezer, we get californian frozen squid over here that is better than the fresh squid that my wifes family catch.
I used to love beach casting on the Dorset coast, mackerel grilled on the beach just minutes after it is caught is better than tuna to me.

I must confess, while I love tuna served rare or raw, especially as sushi or sashimi, I do often enjoy tuna salad just as much. I suppose it depends on what I'm in the mood for. I can't speak for everyone else, but I'm willing to acquit you.
Always try to bring a spare set of clothing when you dream about going to work or school. That way, if you encounter someone having that dream where they show up in their underwear, you'll be their hero.

I like frozen tuna and salmon at Trader Joes. Its wild caught American. I used to look for it at Costco and Sams Club but dont like the fact that around here-at those stores,its farm raised and not from this country. So, that makes me wonder how fresh can it be.

If it is frozen than probably fresher than some of the produce that is shipped in. Most places have plants that freeze things as soon possible once they are harvested/processed.
