This. In my little town in central Oklahoma we have two fish markets that fly fresh fish in twice daily. Both have their own restaurants attached and both supply that fish to various sit-down restaurants in town, so it's not hard to get fresh fish, but it requires a chef to design his or her menu around what they can get. My guess with Gumps being a chain, they have a corporate chef to set the menu which requires them to produce/purchase pre-battered shrimp, fish, etc. IMO fresh is better and when I go to a fish/shrimp restaurant I expect fresh, or maybe I'm just a snob
