Cod, Gadus morhua
Artist: Lauren B
The Atlantic cod is a large, emblematic marine fish. It is demersal, which means it is generally found in deeper water close to the seabed, where it feeds on other fish or marine invertebrates. Cod has been a really important food fish across the world, but in particular in North America and European countries, who have been fishing cod for centuries.
