I found some Tilapia in local fresh market. I wonder how do I give it to Chocolata? Some of the fins seem a little bit sharp. Would you cut it, or just serve it like this and let her choose what she wants to eat? Each fish weights approx. 1lb, so this will be her meal for one day.
Last time I fed raw whole fish, I cut off the fins. You're right, they're very sharp...sharp enough that they'll cut you (at least most of the fish around here that I catch), and it usually holds true for ocean-fish.
I don't feed it anymore since I'm paranoid about the fish bones. They just seem like they would pose a bigger danger than other meats...maybe it's just me (which it probably is since a lot of people feed raw, whole fish). At the very least, I'd chop off the fins.
I will say that last time I took Jes fishing with me, he ate a bluegill that I caught (and they have pretty sharp fins). I took it off the line and was about to put it back and it flipped and flopped and I dropped it. He ran over and *gulp* down the gullet it went. It never caused any problems, but that could've been luck too.
