Haddock are elongated fish with a purple-grey back and head, and a black lateral line. Though similar in appearance to cod, haddock are smaller on average, from 38 to 69 centimeters in length and 0.9 to 1.8 kilograms in weight. The species can easily be recognized by the black mark above the pectoral fin, which is sometimes called the Devil’s thumbprint. A demersal fish, haddock usually live at depths of 50 to 250 meters and mainly feed on small invertebrates.
