Great post Mici. Love the 3 times tenet!
We have Europen Carp here, a real pest, they have ruined our waterways and eaten all the native fish. Some Europeans eat them, they taste like mud to me. Our rivers and streams have a different base to yours and cannot cope with the carp.
Only way to make them edible here is to fillet and skin them, perferably after you have let them swim in the bath tub for a few days to purge some mud. Then place fillets on ice. Ice draws out some of the bad taste. All to much hard work for me. Id rather eat dog food!
99.9% of carp here is turned into "charlie carp" fertiliser for the garden.
For native fresh water fish we have Murray Cod, Yellowbelly, perch, Bass, and of course introduced Redfin and rainvow and Brown Trout, al taste like rubbish to me.
You can tickle trout here, you feel under the ledge of small streams, tickle along going up stream, feel the trout tickel it along the body till you feel the gills, then jab your fingers in and throw them onto the bank.
Fish in Pork fat, now thats enough to make me chunder!
