The whole trick is to deliver fresh fish to the market. With many different types of boats there is basically one way to assure the catch is fresh and that's ice. The smaller "Day Boats" simply gut and pack the fish in ice, a tried and true method to preserve it's freshness. It's a little more involved when the larger or "Trip Boats" are concerned. Most "Trip Boats" have pens below for the different species of fish and as the fish are caught they are layered with ice. A trip lasting more than 5 days great care must be spent to assure the fish doesn't spoil. But one "Trip Boat" in town has a different solution that has amazing results. The "Miss Trish II" uses brine ice made of seawater which doesn't melt as quickly. It actually sticks to the fish as they are packed into 400lb vats while the fish hold is refrigerated. This method works so well the quality of the fish after a 7-10 trip you would think it was just caught!
