Atlantic haddock relates to cod closely. It lives and is caught at the same place which is the North Atlantic with its Norwegian, Northern, Barents seas and the White Sea. Haddock is on the third place in its family in terms of the volume of catching after pollock and cod.
Haddock has got gray scale, a black strip along its side line (cod has got a white strip) and a black spot behind the pectoral fin. English, Scottish and Norwegian fishermen treat haddock with reverence because of this spot. It is believed that this spot is a thumbprint of St. Peter who caught a haddock as it was requested by the Savior and took a coin from its mouth to pay the fee.
The most important attribute obtained by Atlantic haddock is its gastronomic advantages. Haddock lives in the same water as cod, migrates by the same routes and eats capelin and crustaceans and that is why it has a similar to cod taste. Moreover, its meat is also quite lean and dietary.
The meat of haddock is slightly drier while very tasty and valuable.
