    What fish are locally available at the markets? What kinds do you recommend, and what vendors?

    So quick to answer, Jay, and yet with empty words...
    I ask because I like to cook and from what I can tell, fish is about the only meat you can find that's fresh there. Besides, I want to expand my gourmet repertoire. I'm a pretty creative cook

    It is very difficult to find fish in the stores. I personally cook fish frequently, so I go to the fish market downtown every other week to buy fish. Fresh fish is very cheap in the fish market, in my opinion its worth the trip

    Best place to go is always the fish market in st. georges (downtown). Go in the afternoon as the fish will usually be freshest because that is when the fishermen return with their catch. If you go in the morning, the fish is often from the day before, although it is still quite fresh.

    You will see lots of varieties there. The most common items are tuna, various types of snapper, grunt (you won't know what these are unless you know fish ID...usually french or white grunt if I remember correctly), parrotfish (which I have never eaten, but heard is good), spanish mackerel, rainbow runner (may be the same as spanish mackerel), and red or rock hind groupers. They have many different names for all of these fish and different persons name them differently.

    Sometimes you will see sea turtle 'on the slab' also. I have never seen this and would prefer not to.

    Take a plastic bag as they do not always have the best there and, from personal experience, tuna blood leaking into your backpack on a reggae bus is not that much fun.

    The last time I was there I think I got about 10 lbs of tuna for about 21 EC.

    If you have never been to many fish markets the sanitation practices may disturb you a little. Make sure to rinse and cook properly but there is probably less risk of problems (i.e. in the form of gastrointestinal distress) from fish than from beef/pork/chicken.

    The fish is cheap and generally very fresh...enjoy!

    That's pretty cheap for tuna! And fresh too! It's about $3.50/lb here. I do have a little experience with fresh caught fish, so I know what to look for (clear eyes, elastic skin, no smell). I've prepared it myself from lake to table. And the low risk of bacteria/parasites is a big reason I'd be cooking it. That, and I just love fish. Actually, I seem to say that about all foods...."I love oranges!", "I love brussels sprouts!", "I love fish!"
    But seriously, if I had a decent fridge and maybe a freezer, I can see myself buying a lot of fish.

    Oranges in Grenada are Green....
    That's my 2 cents and I want some change back.

    I think I had heard that, but I'm not surprised. My dad lived in Florida for a while when he was a teenager, and he told me a long time ago that oranges are originally green on the trees, and that they are processed (steamed, I think) to make them orange for sale because Americans expect them to be orange.
