[Photographs: Paul Bartunek, unless otherwise noted]

There are plenty of taco spots in Los Angeles, but only a precious few dominate in the world of fried mariscos. Sure, many brick-and-mortar taco spots might offer up a token fish taco here and there, but you can nearly count on one hand the dedicated souls who have made the fish taco their calling. This is their story.

Being a town so close to the sea, it's no surprise that many of these taquerias don't need to abut the water in order to deliver fresh, juicy, wonderfully tasty fish tacos. Plus, with a wealth of proper tortillas to serve as the backbone, Los Angeles is a city with several fish taco gems. You just have to know where to look.
