5. PREPARING FISH FOR CONSUMPTION. (MSVX.02.13d) Fish may contain many parasites, which if prepared improperly can infect the human body.

a. Cleaning fish.

(1) With a pocket knife, scrape the scales off the fish, going back and forth from tail to head.

(2) With your knife, cut the fish open starting at the anus and work towards the gills.

(3) With your finger or thumb, push all the guts out and wash thoroughly. Look throughout the intestines to find out what the fish has been eating. It may aid you in procuring more fish.

b. Cooking fish. To ensure that all parasites have been destroyed, fish should be boiled in a canteen cup or similar container.
