Have you caught some fish and aren't sure what to do with them, our site can help. We have pages on filleting Flat Fish, (such as Plaice or Dabs), Round Fish (Cod, Whiting, Mackerel), getting the bones out and

section for a few ideas and links to good recipe sources.
The first couple of pages are courtesy of friends of ours in the Bait
