Homemade lobster stock question

vchase | Feb 9, 201206:45 AM

I went to a fish market/restaurant that sells lobsters yesterday and asked if they had any frozen lobster carcasses for stock making and they were happy to oblige. The lady told me they usually save them for some of the local restaurants who ask for them too to make bisque. By the time I got home they had thawed a bit and when I opened the bag the smell was horrible - like really awful trash. I sifted through some of the bodies and none of the gunk was cleaned out which I'm presuming was the cause of the odor. My common sense told me to chuck them, which I did, but I'm just curious if these could have been saved by any chance or should I give them a call and say, you might want to double check what you're selling because you gave me a bad batch?
