I have 2 options for fish processing. The first is to drop your fish off at the commercial processors. They will charge you around $2.00 per pound to fillet, vacuum pack, box and freeze your catch. For our guided guests, I'll fillet the fish for you and you can use the commercial vacuum packing machine and freezer at our facility.
