In a bid to ease workload on rural
wometi in coastal areas, a simple yet
effective fish scaler has been developed under a Food and Agriculture
Organization project (IRED-Forum, No 53).
The scaler comprises of meticu-
lously eleaned jagged-edged bottle
tops nailed to a square, wooden bat
in a way to allow their free rotation.
This*s(*er is moved firmly yet carefully, from the tail to the head of the
fish. The new tool accelerates the
scaling process considerably besides
being less damaging to the fish skin.
The tool can also be used to remove
small feathers from poultry.
