DescriptionUntil the mid-1970s, salt cod was the main fish product from Branch. The catch was landed, gutted and split on the marginal wharves along the Gut. In earlier years, marginal wharves and fish stages lined the Gut on both sides. The east side was known as Across the Gut and a footbridge spanned the channel.
