The fish are manually loaded onto the feed chain with the locating pin through the gill at the location of the intended cut. The fish are then automatically advanced into the machine where the head cut is made and the gullet is cut from the collar with a special tool. The fish is then discharged belly first, suitable for automatic feeding to a following operation.
