Atlantic Cod belongs to the same fish Species as Alaska Pollock and haddock – known as the Codfish or Gadidae family. They have an elongated body, a comparatively large head with a protruding upper jaw and prominent chin barbel. Atlantic Cod can grow up to 2 m in length and can live for up to 25 years, but are generally caught when they are younger. Atlantic Cod can be found in open water but they also spend time close to the sea floor, where they feed on benthic creatures such as molluscs, worms, crustaceans and other fish.
Atlantic Cod is available in our Birds Eye fish fingers and as part of the Inspirations range.
