Whole Uncleaned Rainbow Trout at Wegmans

Raffles | Mar 14, 2014 01:40 PM

I bought 4 of these beauties at Wegmans a while ago. I DID NOT notice that the fish were not gutted until I got them home. I flipped out, I mean who sells fish that isn't cleaned? Who has fish in the case that isn't cleaned?
So I call up Wegmans and ask to speak to the Fish Dept.Manager. It was explained to me that the fish stays fresher when it is not gutted. Well ,I never heard of that before. I've been fishing for close to 50 years, both fresh and salt water,and always clean the fish ASAP and get it onto ice...
Any experts out there?
BTW, we ate the fish and lived but I am still skeptical...
