For several hours, the storage of caught fish can be arranged by digging it in the wet, cool coastal sand, having previously closed the fish’s mouth and gill covers. In this case, you must try to keep the storage location in the shade. Even longer, the fish will remain fresh if buried in sand near the exit of cold spring water from the ground. It is sometimes permissible to preserve fish, crayfish, crabs, mollusks, covering with wet algae.
Storage of excess caught fish during survival in emergency conditions, pre-storage processing, cooks and cages.
In the fall, when night frosts are observed, fish, having previously removed the entrails and gills, should be hung up at night not far from the ground, and in the morning, until it thawed, shift the grass so that individual fish do not touch each other. After such freezing, the fish can remain for a week. Unless, of course, leave her in the sun.
it is most convenient to store fish on a cook, in extreme cases in buckets, banks, plastic and rubber bags. In exceptional cases, it is permissible to fill one of the compartments of the rescue equipment, boat and release fish there. If it is impossible to keep the fish alive, it is necessary to carefully gut it, cut off its head, remove the gills, then straighten and hang in the shade to ventilate. A belly cleaned from the insides is better to lay with freshly torn nettles, sedge or other grass. Longer preservation of fish is possible with the help of primitive conservation.
