Went to check the net after tanning elk fur. Guess it pushed the net over 2 days. The wording is erroneous when some fish are spoiled and there's none edible. See screenshot.

Also, we should be able to pick the spoiled fish for dog food / bait.

The bait part seems particularly relevant with the upcoming fishing changes.

Dogs don't eat rotten fish. They roll around in it!

Oh they roll in the guts, or a steaming pile of faeces too.

If you want to feed dogs salmon skulls, bones with meat on et cetera; you need to leave the parts ripening/rotting for 2-3 days. Or your dogs will get gastrointestinal issues. Partially rotting, no problem. You can verify with any musher (or most non-urban Alaska natives, northern territories residents... anyone with river access and sled dogs)
