Toronto source for Chilean Seabass?

Can anyone recommend a Toronto fishmonger/fish counter that's:
  • fancy enough to carry Chilean Seabass
  • down-to-earth enough that it doesn't charge $80/lb+? (ie. not Eataly, Pusateris, etc)
Thanks

Lot's of Asian stores with live / fresh and frozen fish selection. However, knowing how some don't label properly or even fraudulently mislabel, I wouldn't recommend to someone who doesn't know exactly what they are looking for.

Just a bit of UFI to add to the CBC report Many fish names have been changed to make them sound appetizing. "The name "Chilean seabass" was invented by a fish wholesaler named Lee Lantz in 1977. He was looking for a name that would make it attractive to the American market." It is really a Patagonian toothfish.
