I don't think so. They put some weird stuff on fish/shellfish to preserve it in the supermarket. Especially shrimp have a coating of something inorganic (can't remember the name). If you were to use fish, I'd go to an Asian market and buy bulk frozen.
i know that many fish on the market are farm raised. unless it is stated otherwise. and these fish are fed a diet of some form that increases their growth rate tremendously.
now if that diet includes chemicals and other substances i don't know, but i'm sure it has something to make them grow faster for market. so i wouldn't mess with that kind of stuff. some sellers state that their fish are natural, i'd go with that. but it might be a bit more expensive.
and shiftylarry, i second you on that shrimp thing. i do know they have some kind of coating on them, i forgot what too though.
If you can find a fresh food market....for exaple, every Saturday, a few minutes from my house, we have an "open market." Everything is caught fresh, never frozen...anyway, I think that might e your best bet.
