Pollack (pollachius pollachius)

A fish belonging to the gadidae family, so related to cod, coley and haddock. Pollack grow up to 1 metre in length, but 75cm is a more common limit.

They are distinguishable by an arched lateral line along their body. They tend to inhabit rocky coasts, and so have never been a targeted catch, but if found their flesh is good, and they can be treated in the same manner as cod or haddock. They are known as lythe in Scotland and the North of England.
