A premium whitefish, haddock is a member of the cod family, though smaller than Atlantic cod, generally weighing 2 to 5 pounds. The haddock bears a distinguishing black mark often referred to as the “devils thumbprint” or “St. Peter’s Mark”, in the shoulder area, its distinct, dark lateral line and its skin is less mottled than the cod.
Haddock is found on both sides of the North Atlantic. Highest concentrations on the US/Canada coast occur on Georges Bank and in the Gulf of Maine. Haddock is also found throughout northern Europe, where it is revered for fish and chips and cold smoked product.
