Corf

Corf

[kawrf]
A corf is a basket of net, chicken wire or similar materials, used to contain live fish or crustaceans (such as crayfish) underwater, at docks or in fishing boats. Corfs were used formerly to keep captured or grown fish live and fresh for consumption. Today, corfs used this purpose have commonly been replaced by refrigeration and freezing.
