Been doing almost like that only I add about 1/2 teaspoon salt in open ziplock then put a little water in and set bag I sink push zipper down untill a little water comes out and zip it up. No air in and I have had some last longer than a year. I lost them in bottom of freezer and found them when freezer was changed out.

This is absolutely terrible advice.

That faucet water is full of all sorts of chemicals (chlorine and fluoride just to name two) that will impart an unnatural taste on your fish. You're literally "marinading" the fillets in tap water.

Do some more research, there area A LOT of better ways out there...

i used to do that but the vacuum sealers are pretty good at making food last.
i have found 2 yr. packs in the bottom of the freezer and it wasn't too bad although about a year is good to go.

Hey the guy tried and it is a good idea. But yes way to much water in ziplock. Try what I said, very little water remains. Vaccuum sealing is about as good as wraping in celophane or waxed paper. Only a lot more trouble.
Another suggestion never put frozen anything in an upright freezer unless you are using it in short order. Every time you open the door on an upright it dumps a lot of the cold air out.

We had a vacuum sealer for a few years and used it. I like the results, but since we catch most of out fish while travelling, we didn't want to pack one more thing. Besides, those needing some guidance here probably don't need to be told, "buy one more thing."

My saltwater fish fillets never get touched by tap water, yuck. Chlorinated water has an negative effect.

There are places I've lived where the tap water had a negative effect. It's easy enough to use bottled water once you learn that. But there are places I've lived where using the tap water was fine.
