Thank you for posting that, amazing.

Amazing man!


When I worked in Shetland Catch in 1993, it was said that a part of the Baader herring filleting set-up had been invented by a Shetlander;

I was told it was the short, 'rough sandpaper-like' conveyor that shakes from side to side and turns the fish so they are all heading for the opening slips 'head-first'.

A very simple idea that allowed the machine to be operated a lot faster,

using the inventor's knowledge of fish anatomy and how the scales all lie one way.


Was that Jim o' Berry?


And did he also invent a mussel-rope pegging device?
