Keeping Fish - Interesting

Found this video about storing fish. Found it very interesting, especially how long you can keep fish from warmer waters.

 I'm sure some of you ex wet liners knew this, but coming from cray fishing, I had no idea.

Oh, and a couple of picks from 2 saturdays ago fishing metro. Got a couple of bugger ones which I didn't get photos of.

Drop them onto foam/ sponge to avoid bruising and spike them, then straight into ice slurry, no bleeding them as this is an entry point for bacteria. Once their core temp is down then stacked  belly downhead to tail with plenty of shaved or flake ice between each fish and layer of fish

What do you think of the wire up the spinal cord to disconnect the nervous system (after spiking) Carnarvonite?  Thinking about doing it myself but I'm not sure if it's worth the effort

 Never done it, never been tuna fishing where it is done on all fish but think it would take time to get a wire into s dhuey or pinkys spinal cavity as you are not spiking directly in line with it like you do with a tuna
