They have a long body with large eyes and a large protruding upper jaw. Cod are speckled with green or yellowy green spots with an unmistakable white line running from gills to tail. They also have a single “whisker” or “barbel” on their lower jaw.
Where does it live: Atlantic, North Sea, Baltic Sea & Pacific Ocean.
When is it in season: Cod spawn in the winter and are generally in poorer condition then. They are best enjoyed Spring through to Autumn.
What does it eat: Cod feed on smaller fish and sometimes small crab and other shellfish.
Size: Around 30-100cm.
