I've noticed Alaskan Pollock or Walleye Pollock large frozen pieces have been available at one of the small grocery stores we shop at and it's good I prefer that over the frozen Cream Dory the Cream Dory is too mushy.  The price of galunggong (round scad) has double if not tripled in our region in just a year and is the preferred fish because it's meaty not too fishy tasting lol and has large bones so great for frying.
My views would be from someone who lives out in the province close to in-laws on a pension.  Norwegian and French heritage.
