Codfish lives in the icy waters of the North Atlantic and the Arctic. For centuries, these waters were sailed mostly by Portuguese fishing boats, which came back home carrying tons of cod already cleaned and salted. Codfish is large and can reach an average of 1,2 meters in length and 40 kilos in weight. The species is very voracious, devouring everything that moves around them. Its diet is extremely varied, including marine organisms such as fish, squid, crustaceans and other mollusks. It lives in large shoals, sometimes formed by thousands of individuals.
