    I recall reading an article in a local rag back in about Feb ….It was quoting the famous fisherman Pete from Brighton Sports ….some might know him as mulletman’s mentor…….he clearly recommended washing the elephant in FRESH water , and discouraged using salt water as it can result in sand in the flesh ….

    I use fresh , and only fresh for exactly that reason ….and have no issues about the taste …..

    I think its more important to correctly bleed the fish , then keep it chilled till you get it home …..but hey , I might try using salt water and see if it makes a difference …..

    Come to think of it , The washing etc I do with fresh water is with the skin still on …….so it wont change the taste at all ….which would explain why its still edible yum

    Fresh water accelerates the prevalence of bacteria in the flesh.
    Please yourself how you wash your fillets but I will stick to the assured best method, and use clean salt water.
    Sand in your fillets salt water is just bloody clumsy or impatient.
    Let the sand settle before washing.
    That is such a fundamental bit of old news if ever I heard it.

    I dont wash the fillets at all , I wash the fish before filleting ……
