Due to the amount of bacteria present in the guts, It's safer to gut and rinse with clean sea water right away. I never had any problem with fish goung bad in the freezer.

since I was a kid I was always told to clean sworfish immediately as its flesh changes taste. Other fish if I keep i clean in saltwater and keep cool. Alungi I bleed and keep in very cold water when i am about to get to shore i clean like all other fish.

Same here.  A chef once told me to always clean your fish before deep freeze.  So, like Shanook, before I enter port, I clean all the fish I intend to keep, rinse in clean sea water, wrap them in plastic (stretch and seal) and back into the cooler or fridge again until I arrive home. I use 5 or 6 2ltr bottles frozen overnight to keep the temperature down in the cooler.  If I'm going out for Lampuki, I stop at the barge opposite Haywharf and buy a sack of salt water ice flakes.

Interesting Idea about the saltwater Ice flakes Smiley Anyother shop selling those?
About cleaning - do you just remove guts or remove scales too?

The cold stores at Marsa also sell salt water ice flakes.  I'm not sure, but probably also Azzopardi fisheries.  I remove everything, guts, gills and scale.
