ironchef said:Not so. We get fresh tuna right at the fisherman's auction that are fresh. The only thing is, you need to be there at 4am. For boats that stay at sea for extended periods of time, they do flash freeze the fish, but because fresh raw fish is such at a premium in Hawaii (lots of Japanese buyers) and on the West Coast, and because there is so many knowledgable buyers, we do get the fish very, very fresh.
The best place to buy your shrimp is live from a shrimp farm. You don't have to worry about them even touching a freezer, and you can beat the taste and texture of fresh shrimp.
