Buying fresh fish is easy once you've learned the basic
methods for determining its quality. Just follow these
simple guidelines:

Flesh - The flesh should be firm and elastic to the
touch, and should not be separating from the bone.
Fillets should have a fresh-cut appearance and the
color should resemble freshly filleted fish.

Appearance - Fresh fillets, steaks, chunks, cuts, etc.
should look moist, firm, and practically free of any
brownish streaks throughout the meat. If, when you
press your finger into the flesh, there is an
indentation that fills with liquid, or if there is
excessive liquid in the package, the fish has probably
been frozen and thawed.

Eyes - If present, the eyes should be bright, clear,
transparent, full, and protruding. As fresh fish ages,
the eyes will become cloudy and sunken and often turn

Gills - If present, the gills should be bright red and
free of slime. As the fish begins to deteriorate, the
gills change color, fading to a pink, then gray.
Eventually they will become brownish and greenish.

Skin - The skin should be vibrant and bright. Any
skin markings (color, spots, stripes) should be distinct.
