Haddock (Melanogrammus Aeglefinus) is also an Iceland famous fish mostly traced in the sides of North Atlantic. It is known for its popularity as food stock widely consumed and used for commercial purposes. Haddock rather belongs to the family of codfish. Their size 50-60cm in length with ostensible largest size ever caught was 112 cm.
Haddock is abundantly found in all areas of the Iceland waters and migrates often to north coast during warm periods and to the south coast during cold periods. These species can easily be recognized by their lateral line black in colour running along the white skin surface. This feature can easily be confused with Pollock which has the opposite characteristics-white line on a black skin surface.
