How to spot Fresh Fish
Fin : The fins must be preserved, resilient and free from damage. Damage is often a sign of long fishing and overfilled nets, while stuck fins occur due to inappropriate storage conditions.
Clear eyes : Eye clarity is one of the most significant indicators of freshness. The eyes of fresh fish are clear and free from damage, while the eyes of stale fish are dull and bloody.
Branchiae: The bright red color of the gills is another indication of freshness. Individual partitions must be separated. If they are stuck or slimy, they indicate that the fish is not fresh.
The smell of fillets: Fresh fillets should not have a strong odor. If the fillets have a stinging or enhanced "fish" odor, they are not for use.
