Candidate elimination cell

The candidate elimination cell or CEC is a cell that contains a candidate capable of causing a contradiction in a (fish) pattern. Because of this, we can eliminate this candidate.

Together, the pattern, the CEC and the connections between them are what we call a Kraken Fish.
