Fish Facts

With or without bones? Covered or uncovered? When it comes to fish, details make a difference. If salmon, tuna and snapper have you floundering, bone up on fish facts at these helpful sites:

  • National Fisheries Institute
    NFI is the nation's largest seafood trade organization. It offers a wide variety of tips on selecting, preparing and storing fish, including a helpful species guide.

  • Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute
    Get the facts on Alaska salmon, sole, cod, pollock and sablefish. You can also explore health benefits and recipes.

  • Hawaii Seafood Buyer's Guide
    Information on Hawaii tuna, billfish (Pacific Blue Marlin), open ocean fish (Mahimahi) and bottom fish (grouper). Learn about seasonality, shelf life, color, taste, texture and preparation.

Recipe Ideas

The next step is to decide how to cook your seafood supper. The New Zealand Seafood Industry Council explains baking, frying, poaching, grilling, barbecuing and microwaving options. For an oven-steamed delicacy, try Global Gourmet's method.

Lack good recipes? Cast a line into the reservoir below:

  • Gorton's Seven Basic Recipes:
    Basic recipes take you from fish mystery to fish mastery.




  • My Menus
    Browse fish recipes alphabetically or by cooking time, calories, fat and more.

  • The Catfish Institute's Recipe Box:
    From the smallest country kitchens to the hottest restaurants, TCI crossed the map in search of the best catfish recipes. Categories range from Southern to Spicy.

  • About.com: Cooking What You Catch
    Offers suggestions on when to de-bone, how to creating the best batter and where store cooking grease.

  • Fishin.com: Home Cooked Fish Fillets
    If fish fries are your goal, this site will tell you where to fry and how to minimize "fishy" flavor.

Fresh Catch

Recipes produce the best results when applied to fresh fish. The difference between grocery market freezer stock and a fresh catch is colossal. If fishing isn't your forte, consider ordering the real thing from a next-day service like Blue Crab Seafood.
