Painted byHashime Murayama POLLOCK (Pollachius wirens) [at top]; CODFISH (Gadus callarias) [center]; HADDOCK(Melanogrammus aeglifinus) Ranging across the Atlantic and as far south as Cape Henry, the Pollock, also known as Green Cod,orCoalfish, attains aweight of35pounds and a length of four feet. The liver yields an oil not inferior medicinally to that of the Cod. The temperature of many parts ofthe North Atlantic isso low that Codfish may be caught the year round. The catch of Haddock in recent years has made it a rival ofthe Cod, which itnow occasionally outranks.
