Now celebrating its 10th year, this venerated fish shack in Chinatown East has more than fresh Nova Scotia lobster on its mind. You'll also find east-coast oysters straight from the Atlantic, sustainable wild salmon and colossal king crab legs by the pound.

Blake Edwards and Dave Owen don't just sell some of the freshest seafood in town - locally fished pickerel, Italian scampi, smoked sockeye salmon sausages - but they also provide suggestions on how to prepare it. Bonus: lemon, horseradish and dill are on the house!
Stock up on wild Chinook salmon, littleneck clams, sea urchin roe and soft-shell crabs, then stop by the Oyster Bar next door for lunch.
A decidedly different kettle of fish, Dan and Kristin Donovan's seafood boutique keeps the focus on sustainability, whether its Spanish mackerel, wild Arctic char or line-caught haddock from Nova Scotia. Fishmongering classes, too!

Now in its 60th year, this family-run establishment specializes in one thing and one thing only: Omega-3-rich cold-smoked Pacific coho salmon, either sliced or whole. Instant party tray!
