Even if you live by the sea is seafood very expensive?

it is very different from here, when i was a child we live close to the sea, and seafoods are not that expensive, in fact it is sold very cheaply by the fishermen, the one that sells them with a higher profit are the middlemen, they it from fishermen and then sell it to those at sellers at wetmarkets, and even those that are bought at wet markets are not that expensive here... well, here from where i am living now. there is a wet market here in another town, that is only open two days a week, and seafoods there are very very affordable, tuna sometime are bought $1 a piece, those that are almost 1 kilo, and sometimes king prawns are about $10 a kilo.

It really all depends on where you go to buy them. If you go to the fish markets or the grocery store, you will likely pay a high price for them. They charge as high a price for them as they can because people are usually willing to pay the price to get it. However, here in Pensacola, you can usually find some fishermen who will sell you some at a lower rate. It really depends on what you are looking for as well. Shrimp and some types of fish are usually easy to find here.

Here the price being set by the sea police means that the fishermen are obligated to sell it for a certain price though they are allowed to keep their own fish and can give it to friends and family. To fish here from a boat you must have a professional licence.
