The haddock ( melanogrammus aeglefinus)

is a common fish of the north atlantic. It usually lives at depths of between 40 and 300 metres but has been seen at 15-20 metres after dark. Its diet consists mainly of bottom-living organisms on sandy or muddy bottoms.

The haddock is easily recognised by the dark spot just below the first dorsal fin. The short and rounded nose, the big eyes and pointed shape of the first dorsal fin give the fish a distinctive look. The colour of the fish is grey with brown spots and the lateral line is clearly visible.
