IS A FISHY ODOR GOOD OR BAD?
Red Gold Pro Fisherman Todd Hollowell knows about fish and offers the following advise:
“Fishy” odor begins to develop immediately after a fish is caught and killed, its bacteria on the surface breaking down different compound of trimehtylamin. As long as the skin of the fish is still firm and shiny, rather than slimy, the fish is still good to cook and eat. If there is an overpoweringly fragrance of ammonia or it’s mushy, slimy or otherwise questionable, toss it out.
To get rid of that fishy odor caused by stinky trimethylamin, soak the fish in milk for 20 minutes and pat it dry.
