Anyone ever get fish from the market?

I was wondering if anyone has gone to the local super market deli and bought fish or shrimp that they were ready to get rid of and use it to feed their fish. I was thinking about talking to the managers and getting perhaps some shrimp or salmon and then blenderize it and then freeze in small portions...

I used to feed one of my bigger fish raw shrimp from the market, he loved it.

Where do you buy nori? Do you go to a specialty market or can you buy it at your local stores? I am not so sure that I would have it here in Texas...

Nori/Wamaka is also called Red Eatable Sea weed. It is really yummy actually. Ummm, try Whole Foods. I am from Austin and I know Waxahachie is a small town, but you might be able to find one near you.
