Filleting A Fresh Fish

Fresh fish is the best fish. This video discusses filleting a fish.

Here are some things to think about when cleaning a fresh fish:

Be careful because fish fins are sharp and if you are not careful can cause a serious puncture wound

Some fish, puffer fish as an example, can be toxic

Just because you caught a fish does not mean it is edible. Some fish are too bony or have too strong a taste to eat.

Many fish have extremely sharp and cutting teeth. Hold the head carefully when cleaning.

Take the time to know the area where the fish was caught. Some areas are polluted and you should not eat any fish caught in the area.

Streams, ponds and lakes are the best place to catch fish.
