Cod is a very popular type of fish for food with its mild thick white flaky flesh. Some people enjoy looking after these large fish, especially since when they eventually die after a long happy lifetime they make a good meal for their owner. There are many ways to prepare the fish, and even the liver is valued since it can be used to make cod liver oil, a great source of many vitamins. Because of its usefulness and popularity the cod has a vast history of being prized in fishing and trading. They hunt and eat a variety of things from mollusks to small fish using the barbel under their chin to scavenge on the sea floor. They prefer costal inland areas to the open waters of the ocean.
