You can still get the famous Yarmouth bloater though.
‘Cisco’ is the name the Indians gave to several varieties of fish found in the Great Lakes, commonly known as lake herring, bloater , cisco, and long-jaw.
Consider two such species, the shortnose cisco and the bloater .
Around 1835 a new type of lightly salted, lightly smoked bloater was first made at Yarmouth.
The smokehouse smokes anything that stands still for long enough; pheasant, ham hocks, bloaters , garlic, eel, sausages.
Yarmouth bloaters soon acquired a national reputation and the town remained in the top ten until the later 18th cent.
Many a person has gone away smiling after eating one of these red herring, bloaters or kippers.
