One way to help get the job done is to flash freeze the fish before putting it in the ice chest. Flash freezing fish preserves its flavor and texture while keeping it fresh. There are different ways to flash freeze fish depending on what you are using as your freezer.
If you are using a standard kitchen freezer, you can place the fish in a single layer on a baking sheet and place it in the freezer for several hours or overnight. Make sure that you wrap the fish well in plastic wrap or foil to keep it frozen and fresh.
If you are using an ice chest, one way to flash freeze fish is to place them whole on a bed of ice cubes. Make sure that they are covered with water so that they do not freeze solid. This method works best if you are going to use the fish within a few days. If you plan on storing the frozen fish for longer periods of time, then it is best to thaw them out before cooking or eating them.
