Carefully clip the tissue holding the fins to the body of the fish.

The fins present a problem if the skin is peeled back too quickly. Carefully pull the fins out and expose the tissue attaching the fins to the muscles. The fins will remain part of the peeled skin. If the skin is not to be removed as a cylinder, this care may not be necessary.
