We take care of cleaning it and filleting it for you so you can take it to your resort or favorite restaurant to get it cooked, there is nothing more enjoyable than savoring your own fresh catch, also we can arrange for you to take your fish back home, whether natural or smoked, it is frozen and vacuum packed so that you can take it on the airplane.
