8. Fish Absorbent Pads

New Product Showcase: Fishing Accessory

Fish care does not stop once you clean and filet your fish. When refrigerating and freezing fish, bacteria continue to grow and multiply in any kind of moisture. AFTCO’s new absorbent pads will absorb that moisture whether you plan to cook the fish the next day or two months from now. Soaking up bacteria results in a fresher, less fishy, delicious filet that you will enjoy much more than before. Perfect sized to fit in a gallon ziplock and can be folded to fit other size bags.
