Fresh fish

Is really good fish and shellfish only available in France on the coast?  If not, don't suupose anyone could recommend a good fishmonger or fish market within say a 20 mile radius of Quillan.  Most of the fish we've bought locally is pretty ropey and quite expensive.  Don't mind paying for the really fresh stuff though.

We drove through Formigueres on a Saturday morning a couple of weeks ago and saw a busy stall in the market there selling seafood and, I believe, fresh fish.

I know that's a bit far from you, but maybe they also go to other markets in your area.

If not, there were quite a few places selling fresh trout along the valley.

Angie - it's hard to understand why you can't get a good selection of fresh fish so close to the Med. coast?

We're a long way from both coasts and get a good selection of quality fish, from supermarkets. There was once an independent fishmonger here but he got squeezed out.[:(]

As Nomoss wrote though, probably the fresh water trout is the most fresh.

Thanks all for your replies.  NormanH, will give Mirepoix a try as that isn't too far - we like the town so not a problem.  The fish in our supermarket is very hit and miss quality-wise, but always expensive!  Haven't seen any trout for sale along the valley so shall have to keep a sharp eye out.  Love trout!
