Atlantic Cod – 8 oz frozen portion. This fish was wild caught on Sambro, Nova Scotia.
Atlantic cod’s scientific name is Gadus morhua. The color of cod varies depending on its habitat, ranging from reddish brown to pale grey-green. It can be identified by a small barbell that extends from the chin of the fish to its whiskers. It has three dorsal fins, an almost square, broom-shaped tail and a disproportionately large heard on a streamlined body that allows it to swim at moderate speeds. It has large, tender flakes that make for an incredibly juicy, delicious fish – perhaps the reason it has long been one of the most famous fish species.
