Atlantic Cod Gadus morhua

Atlantic cod are commonly found on sandy bottoms and are often mottled brown in appearance. This is a heavy and powerful fish with three dorsal and two anal fins, all slightly rounded, and either a square or rounded tail fin. A prominent curved, white (or very pale) lateral line makes this species easy to identify. Image: Joachim S. Mùˆller (iNaturalist).
