Alas, the poor fish in the tanks at these stores are not for buying as pets, they're to be eaten for dinner. I love fresh seafood but this is a little too fresh. When you pick out the fish you want, does the store clerk kill it for you or do you have to do it yourself? Maybe you can just hope that it doesn't survive the ride home in a plastic bag without water...
