I have some mackerle and they only weigh 8oz.can i feed 2 or should i only give him 1 per meal.at least i know he likes fish.but i don't think there wouldn't be anything he won't eat.he had some beef lung yesterday and eat it up.ben just spit it out.i only gave him a small little piece.he loves beef heart.goes nuts when he see's me with it.

Rosco had three herring totaling 1.5lbs for supper last night, so as long as he handles fish ok, id say feed whatever you need to.

The mackerle was a big hit.had 2 of them and was looking for more and kept licking his empty bowl.

I will remember that.but for $2 and change i got 3 mackerel.and $2.99 a bag of the frozen big sardines.which is better then 99 cent for 1 can of sardines or tuna.

ok.we fish around here in the summer.so is it safe to feed what we catch out of the streams,rivers and man made lakes.

Honestly, I'm not 100% sure. I would maybe just freeze it for a few days, just to be safe. But really, I don't think it would be an issue.
