Definition of Term

(English) Cutting through the nape, that is the flesh beweeen the head and the belly of the fish such as cod, as a preliminary to gutting, so that when the belly is subsequently slit longitudinally to the vent, the belly wall can be laid open to expose the belly cavity for cleaning. Single naping is the severance of only one half of the belly wall; double naping means cutting through both halves. (See also: gibbing)
