Definition of Term

(English) When abalone or scallops are shelled, the `gut' (including the roe) is removed from the meat (the white muscle block which joins the shells). Usually these shellfish are marketed with the red or orange roe (gonad) still attached; however, in some markets or for some species, meat without the roe is preferred (e.g., doughboy scallops). (See also: gonad, roe, shell)
enlever la rogue
(French) Quand les ormeaux ou les escalopes sont décortiquées, l'intestin (y compris la rogue) est retiré de la chaire (le bloc du muscle blanc qui joint les coquilles). Ces crustacés sont vendus avec la rogue rouge ou orange (gonade) encore attaché ; cependant, dans quelques marchés ou pour certaines espèces, la chaire sans la rogue est préférée (par exemple, les escalopes 'doughboy'). (See also: gonad, roe, shell)
(Portuguese) Quando é tirada a concha às vieiras (Pecten), as vísceras (incluindo as ovas) são separadas do músculo comestível (que faz abrir e fechar as valvas). Usualmente são comercializadas sem ovas. (See also: gonad, roe, shell)
