It will keep the fish from being freezer burned and let it keep longer. You can do this with chicken also. It depends on how long you intend to freeze it. Fish frozen in ice will last longer due to air next to the meat can cause freezer burns. If you intend on using it in less than a year or so, you can freeze it on a piece of wax paper and when frozen, transplant into a large ziplock bag. This allows you to remove the amount you want, and not have to dethaw the whole amount. This way, you can remove individual portions at ease.

Fish are cold blooded, therefore their body temperature is virtually the same as that of the surrounding water they live in. Each fish species has an optimal temperature that they prefer.
