Fishy advice

This article on Buying and Storing Whole Fish from Saveur covers points about buying fish that are pretty basic, but it probably doesn't hurt to have the periodic reminder.

They also have this great advice on storing your beautiful, fresh fish once you've brought it home:
Store whole fish in the coldest part of your fridge wrapped in parchment or butcher's paper on a tray of crushed ice. Make sure the fish does not come in direct contact with ice, which can cause frost damage. Change the ice frequently, as melting ice will waterlog the flesh, deteriorating the flavor and texture.
