Part of the fun of catching fish is eating what you’ve caught. However, before any fish fillets gets put in a fryer or on a grill, anglers need to know how to properly clean what they’ve caught.
People who would like to learn more about the equipment needed to clean fish should register for the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) virtual program “Fish Skills: Fish Cleaning Equipment.” This free online event will be from 2:30-3 p.m. on Feb. 1 and is the first in a three-part series of programs on how to clean fish. These three online programs are being put on by the staff of MDC’s Shoal Creek Conservation Education Center in Joplin.
At this program, MDC Education Administrative Specialist Tim Smith will discuss the knives and other equipment needed to clean fish. People can register for this program at:
