Maximise the use of all fish caught and kept

There is an endless number of ways to utilise almost every part of a fish, even the scales are being used as people answer the call to ‘waste nothing’. Numerous fish species have copious amounts of meat in the head area which are not accessed by simply filleting them. The head and frame are prized across various cultures and ignored sometimes in other cultures. The solution in any case is to show respect for the fish and our community by sharing the unwanted parts that other people will appreciate. If you don’t know anyone in your street who would want them, go to www.freefishheads.co.nz to find a lucky and grateful recipient.
