I also love to eat fish, and confess to buying non-frozen fish here, packed with a neutral gas, to help preserve it. Other fish are usually of disappointing quality.

At the big Coop at Bern-Wankdorf, the ice was not changed regularly, and the stench of old fish juice on the old ice was appalling, I was thus put off by the sloppy presentation. Perhaps it is better today, but it used to smell really bad.

Maybe it is the extra border crossing that causes the delays, but fresh fish bought in nearby France is far superior to Swiss sea fish. And when have you seen conger eel or periwinkles for sale here? In France, only 41 Kms from Neuchâtel! https://www.google.ch/maps/dir/Neuch...106!2d47.05698

SEA fish in France and in CH Comes from the same place, the Grand-Market in Paris, The border crossing means a delay of one working day, but there are supplementary factor like bad handling etc.


on the Bodensee (also the Untersee section and the Ueberlinger-See section) you can, in many Restaurants get fresh fish out of the lake, Particularily praiseworthy are some German Restaurants on the northern shores of the Untersee (not cheap)l
