fish store
1) a store selling fish
2) a building where dried cod from the offshore fishery was stored for collection or export (eastern Canada). Cod were also cleaned, washed, salted and stored in large puncheons. Also used to store gear in winter and spring and as a place to mend nets. The floorboards were kept loose so that unusally high tides would simply lift the boards and not damage the store. A launch enabled boats to be hauled out of the water for repair and painting. A rail on the wharf was used for drying nets. Flakes (q.v.) or platforms of boughs were erected in nearby fields and salted fish were laid out on them to dry in the sun. Such fish kept for long periods, even under tropical conditions, without refrigeration
