For the last few years a group of us go camp out for a few days. One meal a day is fish that we catch.

As you can imagine, fish carcasses add up quickly even though we only take what we can eat. I was concerned about attracting predators so we were throwing the carcasses back into the water. Our underwater fish graveyard was unpleasant and an immediate regret, but without any good ideas, we kept doing it for our safety.

Is there any reasonable alternative solution to our dilemma?

I am no expert by any means, but the so called predators will smell the fish you catch, carcass or not. Your only other choice that I can see is to put the remains on the opposite shore, back in the bush a ways.

Bob is correct!!!
From experience, we never clean fish near our camp/cabin site. Carcasses and entails and table scraps go into a bucket/container and deposited on the opposite shore back in the bush away from other camp sites. The container is washed out before bringing it back and left, filled with water, where we clean fish.
