Remarks 'Yellow', i.e., the name is derived from the color of preserved goldeye, the popular commercially brined and smoked goldeye is bright red through orange to golden; this color, once achieved by preparing them with the smoke of willow wood only is now largely produced by harmless aniline dyes; 'herring', from Old English 'haering', i.e., the gray fish, from prehistoric West Germanic 'kheringgaz', i.e., 'kher' = English 'hoar', i.e., silvery gray color of herring (p. 281 in Ref. 11979).
