Default Need Help to much fish

Please help I need to freeze Scamp BFT and Red Snapper. Please provide best methods for each. I have a vacuum sealer but have heard for the snapper and scamp it is best to freeze in water and vacuum the tuna. PFF thoughts?

All I can speak for is snapper and I vacuum seal it, just rinsed off, no extra water

C'mon it is only 250 mile to B'ham frying some Scamp for dinner tonight and plan to bring in the fryer and generator to work and fry some more for lunch.

Like jaster says...that is the way I have done it for 15 years and get great results from vacuum sealing. Also it stores nicely in the freezer without all of the extra room water packaging takes.

Vacuum seal here too with a twist: Usually we clean fish after a trip and stick them in in zip-lock bags as serving size portions. Fridge overnight then then next day I vac the bags inside the cryo-bag. I open the zip first to let any air out during the vacuum process. The zip reseals as the air leaves. I've found that this double layer keeps the fish fresh way longer than just cryo. I've done this with fish frozen in zip-locks and it seems to work that way as well.

BFT dip piece in a solution of salt and water. Wrap in plastic wrap tight. Put in vacuum sealed bag and seal air tight. There are "how to" posts here on the PFF.
