As soon as your catch is aboard, it is placed in the boat's icebox for safekeeping. At the end of the day, (while you relax and prepare for hors d'oeuvres and dinner), your catch is taken to a prep area where the fish is cleaned, filleted or cut into steaks, portioned, vacuum packed, labeled, quick-frozen, and packaged into 50 lb. boxes for easy transport.
Boxes of fish will remain frozen for 48 hours outside of a freezer. Guests whose return trips last longer than that can rent freezer lockers in Ketchikan and SeaTac airports. In addition, most hotels en route are accustomed to handling frozen "luggage" for their guests. We do not advise shipping fish home via delivery service.
