Busting Myths On What Is A Trash Fish

Granted these fish may not hold up well after being frozen for periods of time and would most likely have a strong fishy taste.I think this is where the notion of trash fish comes into play. Highly regarded fish such as mahi- mahi or wahoo can be frozen and taste, maintain freshness months after freezing. These are easy fish to work with, that maintain their structural integrity.
