With an outdoor sink you can keep the mess out of your home.
While some people are perfectly fine with cleaning fish and game in their kitchen sink, some might be kind of grossed out by the mess. Although the finished product is usually worth it, the process of cleaning your countertop and sink until it's spotless can be a job no one wants to do. Another thing you have to deal with is the awful smell. Cleaning fish is definitely a job for outside.
Because of the resources in your kitchen, it makes sense why you'd want to cut and clean there. That's where the cutting board is, and of course, your kitchen sink. To avoid the mess inside, you could always invest in a fish table or outdoor sink. Not only are they great for descaling, but they come in handy for outdoor cooking as well.
