||Common on most Irish coasts
and unlikely to be mistaken for any other species, even though
the colour of adults varies. Caught over a wide range of seabed
from reefs and wrecks to areas of shingle and sand and in
many of the larger estuaries. Cod are available throughout
the year, but generally peak fishing times are May and June
(boat angling) and December and January (shore fishing). Grows
to over 50lbs.
