At NESCO / The Metal Ware Corporation, The Pan Handler® Fish Filleter is an example of one of the unique products that we manufacture here at our facility.

Because fish fillets do not contain the larger bones running along the vertebrae, they are often said to be "boneless". However, some species, such as the , have smaller intramuscular bones called within the fillet. The skin present on one side may or may not be stripped from the fillet. Butterfly fillets can be produced by cutting the fillets on each side in such a way that they are held together by the flesh and skin of the belly.
