Haddock

Haddock is a saltwater fish, easily recognised by a black lateral line running along its white side  and a distinctive dark blotch above the pectoral fin, often described as a “thumbprint” or even the “Devil’s thumbprint” or “St. Peter’s mark”

Haddock is usually found in the North Atlantic Ocean and associated seas. Mostly it occurs over soft bottoms at depths between 10 and 200 m. Haddock is the fish most commonly eaten by Icelanders.
