    Default dogfish ???

    Saw a guy trying to clean one at the docks in Seward and the witeish grey mush he came up with did not look like anything I would like to eat. I have thought about cliping the wings from a Skate and extracting the muscle from the cartiedge, has anyone ever done that and what do they taste like?

    The fish and chips in England are made from dogfish.

    Edit: the fish is made from dog fish, not the chips!

    Lots of work for a amall amount of thin meat that is O.K.

    Yes! I have never kept one or even eaten one, but I might try it this year. From people I know that have retained them I have been told to bleed them and gut them immediately. Apparently they start excreting urea into their flesh as soon as they die so essentially the Freddy Kreuger thing is quite important. And I'd think you'd want a knife totally devoted to just cutting them up. Their skin is like 60 grit sandpaper.

    And I have also talked to people that have kept skates and they say the meat is quite good---so much like scallop meat that a lot of people can't tell the difference. Supposedly people have actually taken round cookie cutters and punched skate meat out and sold it as scallops, but that might be one of those old wives tales. But also from what I've heard it can be a nightmare trying to separate the meat from the cartilage. So much so that I've been told not to bother. Guess I'd just have to give it a try sometime and see.
