What to do with fish heads and fish tails?

So I'm doing this little experiment on eating on $3 a day.

At the farmers market that sells fancy wild, just-off-the boat salmon and other fish for about $15 a pound, they are selling the fish heads, tails and other leftovers from the fillets for a buck fifty a pound ... $1.50 ... yep.

There is a generous amount of fish with the heads and tails. So I'm thinking fish chowder? Any recipies?

It would be nice to have a chowder or recipe where some of the servings could be frozen. So I'm thinking a cream or milk-based chowder wouldn't do.

Doesn't have to be chowder. Could be any recipe using heads and tails.

So ... like what happens to the eyes when you cook the fish heads? Do they stay in place or kind of float around?
