I never knew that feeding my dog fish could potentially harm him.  Thanks for the info.

I have heard that it is dangerous to give dogs raw salmon.

Most dogs like fish--the fish is good for them except something like cod that can often have worms in the belly portion. I would never ever feed a dog bones from fish or chicken. Sooner or later you are going to have a serious problem.

The fillets go to the guests - if there are any. 

The belly, cheeks and bones get marinated in soy and ginger and put under the broiler.  That's the best part!!

The only fish I actually keep are Whitefish from the Stave for my smoker.  I will only keep Rainbows if they are badly hooked, like with bleeding gills in areas where you are allowed to keep any.  I do love trout though.  I basically just c&r these days..

Anything left over after filleting gets saved for the dog. I take my skinny fillet knife and take almost everything off, put it in tin foil and bbq along with the rest of the fish for that evening. I feed the cooked trimmings to the dog and then freeze it in smaller containers so it gets spread out over time. I do this as well with all my scraps from filleting the whites before I smoke them. The dog pretty much gets fish year round with the amount of fishing that i do.

With a culinary background I definately use all I can but have to admit i do not eat the heads. I have use them for soup stock but do not eat the cheeks and what not. I used to save them for a lady I worked with and she loved them. But there is definately more to eat than just the fillet. If you boil the Skeleton most of the meat falls right off and is excellent for soup, salad, sandwhiches and the list goes on. In the future i will share some of the recipes i have had success in the Hotels and resorts i used to work.

I always save the head, tail, fins, and some belly fat for fish soup, package and save in freezer. It's an European recipe, we love eating fish soup with the right ingredients.

The frozen soup packages last us well until early in the new year. When we are filleting our fish, we also save the back bones with all the meat that's left on them. It's delicious to find pieces of meat later in soup!

Mmmm, I'm craving a good salmon soup...

this fall after an epic day of Coho fishing we had some heads and tails in a container in the back of the truck.  In the early am we found that racoons had set up shop right in the back of the truck and were feasting nicely.

as a cook, when we filet fish for the restaurant we used the scraps and trim for chowder or stock. At home I usually keep the heads for crabbing and I cook the bones to use the meat for sandwiches.
