WHAT IS COD ACTUALLY?
VERY POPULAR, HEALTHY & VARIOUS SORT
Atlantic Cod is a hugely popular fish and has been part of the European diet since the Stone Age. There are three cod species known, Atlantic, Pacific and Greenland.
Atlantic Ocean Cod is part of a group of fish species often referred to as “Groundfish” because they usually live on or near the ocean floor. Some other species in this group include pollock, haddock, hake, ling, saithe, tusk and ocean perch.
In contrast to the ocean temperature in warmer climates, the cold water that surrounds Northern Atlantic makes the cod grow slowly, which gives it a unique freshness, taste and texture.
Cod has a mildly flavored, moist white meat and can be prepared in many ways.
