I bury all of my fish carcasses in the garden. Fish meal is a regular fertizer. You just have to bury them deep, otherwise the neighborhood dogs and racoons will dig them up.

This year I started burying all my carcasses in my compost pile and it is becoming quite rich and it does not smell. The quality & quantity of earthworms has also increased. Next year I will use the soil for planting. The fish seems to breakdown rather quickly as I bury them in rows. It's true, I read the Indians used to plant corn seeds with a Herring for fertilizer.
