Living 1000 miles from any ocean I wouldn't know one from another,
other than in a market.

Here it's about a mile as the raven flies, and mostly halibut and salmon. And usually a gift from friends. No complaints.

Checked a slab of salmon (about 16 inches,frozen) at the market
yesterday. Cost: $15.88. I'd not complain either. Lucky you.

That's less than a dollar an inch.

I thought you had me on "ignore". You certainly paid
attention to that posting.
