    Hi All,

    Does anyone know where I could get whole mussels in the shell to feed my Copper Band ? He /She is eating clams but would like to add more to the menue.

    I would second Dallas' suggestion. Dial the Yellow Pages and ask for Sea food wholesalers in your region...
    Otherwise - try Pick-n-Pay or Checkers' Sea food section.... Ask them...

    or you could try the portugese fish market near 4ways crossing.

    although fresh (as in NOT frozen) are very difficult to find....i know I like to cook them:)

    you can get full shelled ones from the bigger PnPays, or else go to an Adega's, CTFM or the like and ask where they get them from:)
