    highly charged and oxygenated fish like tuna family members yes with a cut in throat or towards tail. MOST IMPORTANT is the proper chilling with a slurry of clean sea water and ice. ALWAYS keep your filets/steaks in a ziplok surrounded by ice in cooler or frig. Don't just bag and toss in frig. Major difference in length and quality of freshness.

    yes-more humane to the fish, fillets are cleaner.

    The same way you do a tuna.

    and if you don't know how to bleed a tuna, ask - lots of us here can help with answers - and some of us may do it a little different than others.

    Thanks to all who answer/ed. It's always been a practice of mine to bleed a fish not only for cleaner meat but also with salmon we harvest the eggs for bait and bleeding them means no bloody eggs that can go bad. I also give my fish a wood shampoo then slit their throat. The shampoo put's em out quick and the slit speeds up the process.

    If you bleed a fish while its heart is still pumping you will remove more blood than bleeding it after it dies.
    I like to bleed blackfins by tying them off by the tail and dropping them over the side while their heart does the rest, or if they are small, I just drop them alive head first into a five gallon bucket of seawater after making the cut.

    Only bleed for tunas, no reason to bleed any other fish.
