how are dogfish categorized in the regs?

Post by Dustin07 » Wed Jul 03, 2013 12:54 pm

I'm guessing they are "all species of shark" except those which are closed, limit of 15?

Bottomfish Includes Pacific cod, Pacific
tomcod, Pacific hake (or whiting), walleye
pollock, all species of dabs, sole and flounders
(except Pacific halibut), lingcod, ratfish,
sablefish, cabezon, greenling, buffalo sculpin,
great sculpin, red Irish lord, brown Irish
lord, Pacific staghorn sculpin, wolfeel, giant
wrymouth, plainfin midshipman, all species of
shark
, skate, rockfish, rattail, and surf perches
excluding shiner perch.

Bottomfish Year-round season. Daily limit is a total of 15 BOTTOMFISH (see definition page 10) regardless of species, subject to individual limits and seasons shown below. Fishing for BOTTOMFISH prohibited in waters deeper than 120 feet.



is that accurate? I've always been told nasty rumors about the dogfish and have always thrown them back because of that... but after seeing Zimmerman eat them on Bizarre Foods I'm thinking I want to develop my own opinion. [flapper]

They're good, bleed and skin them.

They are bottom fish!

It's all they use in Europe now for fish and chips.

In England anytime you saw "Rock Salmon" on the menu at the fish and chip shop you knew it was dog fish.

According to the dogfish cookbook (yes it is a real cook book) you need to soak them in vinegar and water or lemon juice and water to neutralize the urea in the meat. When I tried it I thought it didn't have any flavor. Not bad just no taste.

I was under the impression that dogfish were also very high in mercury and other contaminants?

I have seen similar reactions from gutted sturgeon, seems to be a cartilaginous fish thing...

Not sure if I could eat dinner after going through that trauma. LOL

I am trying to come at all foods with an interest in eating them, regardless of how taboo or gross they seem. for the most part, the only reason I dont try certain foods is fear of it making me sick... one reason I avoided dogfish for years. its hard to find accurate information sometimes.

That squid sashimi looks delicious! Just like I like my geoduck. I've had dog fish do the same thing, it's weird. Same with snakes, except for snakes do it for hours.

Whoa... I've never seen anything like that before in my life. I had to look closely to make sure they were just the filets not like a whole fish that had just been skinned or something weird.

I have eaten them more than a few times. I usually keep it to myself from all the YECKS LOL If you let them die they WILL release the Urine. Kill them and skill and clean them in one swift motion and the meat is perfect. It’s as good as any cod you will find and there are no bones.

did you mean to say skin them? was was fumbling with one on the boat and found skinning it to be a little more work than I thought. is it enough to gut it and put it on ice?

Look up skinning or cleaning dogfish on youtube, there are some videos that show how to do it in seconds.

When I get home from work, I'll see if I can find some pics of a buddy of mine with dogfish in the boat. He did some U-tube reading, etc. He pulled out the Ginsu knife and got bizzy with them in mere seconds.

To keep the dog fish or release the dog fish... that is the question. It makes sense that you could gut the thing right there and not worry about the urine. Should take less time too.
