Now that you know how to fish, you may want to keep a few of your catches to take home for dinner. This means that it's the perfect time to learn how to transport fish that you plan to eat.
Knowing how fish should be transported will not only improve food safety, but will also improve the flavor of your fillets. Consider using these helpful tips between the time you bring your catch to the boat and the moment you place it on your plate.
Assuming that you have a valid fishing license, and that your catch is within the regulations, decide to either keep or release the fish immediately after catching it. Remember, even if the regulations allow you to take additional fish, you should take only the number of fish that you can eat to avoid waste.
Now that you know how to transport fish from lake to home or from ocean to home, you can find some great recipes and try different preparation methods.
