Does anyone know where to buy jellyfish meat?

I've been looking for jellyfish meat the past couple of days now, manly searching Asia Stores all over Zurich, without much success. So, if anyone knows where I could get my hands on some, I'd be really grateful. Wether it's dried, canned or fresh doesn't really matter. Location is also not important, though preferably around Zurich, though even southern germany is Ok.
Many thanks in advance
Simon

I didn't even know you could eat jelly fish! You truly learn something new every day!

(was googling around, but all I found is newspaper articles about gene manipulation in France - Lamb for Medusa)

The fish shop next to me in the Viadukt market can get it fresh, they get deliveries every Thursday from a fish guy in Rotterdam, I'll ask him tomorrow when he arrives what sort of price it'll be

Wow thank you very much, you really helped me out of a pinch there. I already called him but he couldn't tell me anything about the price, so I'd be really great if you could ask about that for me.

Re: Does anyone know where to buy jellyfish meat?

I've not tried here, but the supermarkets in London's chinatown sell it in packets, usually with a spice/sauce mix in a separate sachet to make it into a salad. Have you tried the Asian shops in Zurich?

Re: Does anyone know where to buy jellyfish meat?

The shop in the Zurich main station (Sihlquai passage) used to & maybe still does sell dried jellyfish in a packet, aisle against the wall near the checkout counter I believe.

It's pretty foul stuff.
