It can also be salted and brined. These food preservation processes can include adding salt, nitrates or sugar, it can involve smoking and flavoring the fish, and may include cooking it. The earliest form of curing fish was dehydration.
The term “cure” is derived from the Latin curare, meaning to take care of. It was first recorded in reference to fish in 1743.” The fish salting process was practiced thousands of years ago. Since the catch was plenty, the next challenge was how to preserve it. Started in ancient times, England and Norway began to have a bigger income by selling cured herring, cod, and salmon to Southern European countries. Fish was also traded for olive oil, wine, and dry fruit; products that would not grow in a cold climate. The Discovery of America in 1492 by Christopher Columbus has given away to trade. Spain was busy conquering islands and countries in South America, but England followed the shortest route and started to establish new settlements on the Northern Atlantic coast, first in Newfoundland, then in New England Fish was used for trading. Early colonists would not have been able to survive without fish as the climate was harsh and the soil was poor. But fish was plentiful and cured fish became their main source of income. This also opened a lot of trading opportunities and more shipping lines. According to records, in 1580 more than 300 ships from Europe were engaged in salting cod.
The process of curing fish became the main method until Nicholas Appert invented the canning process in 1810. Housemade fish curing is still being practiced today only in remote areas.
