I do like my PS though, because there are 2 guys in there who know what they are talking about, and have both had salt and fresh.
None of the chain stores can possibly QT their fish. The volume required is too high and there are no facilities. There may be a few tanks in the back room that they move the worst to, but that is the best that their business model and corporate policies allow unfortunately.
Ask the guys that know what they're talking about. If they really do and you ask them off the clock, I suspect they'll give you a whole new perspective.
