Re: [Killietalk] bags
I've tied and used rubber bands. But even heat sealed bags leak a little.
Much like Brian has described. It's not a leak like "oh, here's a hole."
But more like, "there's water in the box, where did it come from?"
Regardless who the bags have come from, fish double bagged or not, or how
they're sealed. There's always been some leakage. Perhaps it's due to the
fact that they were all manufactured at one point, and as the bags have
gotten older in Novalek's storage they've started to degrade and leak. I
don't know. It's not enough to be a real problem, but it is an issue that
nearly everyone I know who uses tham has experience with.
