When I lived in Canada we lived about 800km from the ocean. Which was very strange coming from New Zealand where you are hardly ever 800kms from anything, certainly not the ocean. There was however a food truck that would drive from the coast and do the rounds selling fresh and frozen fish and seafood. Once a week I would catch up with the food truck and get some fresh fish and usually some frozen prawns.
