<strong>Chapter 7, pages 210-213.</strong>

Fishermen caught a wide variety of fish off the coast of Maine such as cod, mackerel, herring, and haddock.

The fish were processed at facilities where workers dressed the fish, (removed the heads and internal organs), salted the meat, and allowed it to dry on outdoor racks, or "flakes."
