The Haddock is a bottom dweller and a carnivore, feeding on invertebrates and some fishes. It resembles the Cod and, like its relative, has a chin barbel, 2 anal fins and 3 dorsal fins. It is identified from Cod by a dark, rather than light, lateral line and a distinctive dark spot on each side of the body over the pectoral fins, often called the "devil's mark". Color is otherwise gray or brownish above, paler below. Size is to about 3 feet (90 cm) and 24.5 pounds (11 kg). Haddock is a popular food fish, widely fished commercially.
