I am looking for reliable internet sources for quality wild caught fish.  I have a huge amount of species I can pick from on my SWAMI.  Does anyone know of any good internet suppliers?

I have found a few sources of wild caught fish and wanted to share:

Vital Choice http://www.vitalchoice.com
Wholey's Market http://www.wholey.com
Morey's Market http://www.moreysmarkets.com

I have purchased the salmon and cod from Vital Choice and it has always been excellent, yet very expensive.  I have yet to purchase from Wholey's or Morey's, but they look promising.  Wholey's lake fish is caught on the Great Lakes, and Morey's fish is caught on the lakes of Minnesota.  I would consider Alaska to be the purest, and Minnesota second.  I am rather cautious about ordering fish caught in the Great Lakes, though.  I left out all Florida fish suppliers, due to the huge oil spill in the Gulf that happened for three months straight in 2010.

I am very interested in ordering from Morey's for their walleye, because it is a delicious lake fish, and I can't find it anywhere local.  I plan on waiting until May when fishing season kicks in before ordering from Morey's, although they can fish continually in some areas of Minnesota.  I'm just thinking that the fish may be healthier, more plentiful, and possibly the price might drop.

The fish that I've found locally, that are diamonds, and I enjoy eating are:  sockeye salmon (frozen and canned), pollock, and red snapper

I'm interested in finding:  monkfish, lake perch, and walleye

If you know of any other internet sources of wild caught fish, please post them here.

Thanks, Lola, but I already tried that without success.  I know that C-sharp put up a list of internet sources of meats somewhere on here.  I thought it would be a sticky on one of the forums, but I couldn't find it.  There should be a sticky somewhere that gives us reliable internet sources for wild-caught fish, and organic, free-range poultry/meats.  It's not a huge deal, as I have a few reliable sources already, but I'm sure there's more, and possibly better ones out there.  And, there's always our local co-op, but they love to up-charge everything 20-25% of retail cost.

There is something that's been happening in the fish industry that I'd like to make you all aware of.

The term "wild caught" doesn't necessarily mean "born in the wild and raised in the wild". A lot of fish have been farm raised, birthed in farms, fed whatever food necessary to grow the fish to a certain size, then released into the wild to grow further, and then caught.  

Difficult to know what has been completely raised in the wild and then wild caught as fish cans or
packages don't usually say  "wild raised and wild caught".

We could probably say the same about organic non-GMO veges and fruits.  Even though it says it on the label doesn't necessarily make it so.  Seriously, what can we really trust out there to be fully 100% authentic anymore?
