Corf or Corve

File:Corf.jpg
A wooden corf
A corf (pl. corves) or corve (pl. corves) 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 Today, corfs used this purpose have commonly been replaced by refrigeration and freezing.

The word in mining also meant a small wagon for carrying coal, ore, etc., or a wicker basket formerly used for this purpose.

Origin of term

1350–1400; Middle English from Dutch and German Korb, ultimately borrowed from Latin corbis basket; cf. corbeil
