The trout gutting machine. Its description reads like a C&R fisherman's nightmare.
The fish is placed by the gills on a carrier and brought forwards. The trout enters the machine head first. A retainer holds down the fish for the cutting process by a fixed knife. Both sides of the belly are parted in order to ensure optimal gutting. A grab removes the entire entrails. Then a springed type scraper comes into operation in order to loosen the remains before they are removed by means of two brushes which are arranged one after the other.
