These techniques have been applied to the identification of numerous species of fish and seafood, including gadoids [14], flatfish [15, 16], salmonids [11, 104], scombroids [105, 106], sardines and anchovies [107, 108], eels [109], and mollusks [110, 111].

The square-root model has been observed to adequately describe the GE of different gadoids (e.g., Jones, 1974; Temming and Herrmann, 2003), pikeperch Stizostedion lucioperca (Koed, 2001) and coho salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch (Andersen and Beyer, 2007).
National Trust ranger, Ed Tooth said: "A lack of predators and a plentiful supply of sand eels and gadoids (cod) - which make up a majority of the seals' diet -- has contributed to the success of the colony.

The author has organized the main body of his text in eight chapters devoted to repeated incidents of abrupt and persistent recruitment failures in gadoids in relation to increasing eutrophication, causes of variation in abundance, growth, and mortality in 0-group gadoids after settlement and a hypothesis underlying recruitment variability in Atlantic cod, growth and mortality of settled Atlantic cod in relation to diet, and other subjects.

Human pathogenic parasites occur in several species of fish that may be cold-smoke, including gadoids, salmonids, grouper, halibut, herring, mackerel, mullet, sablefish, small tunas and turbot (Mirza and Shafiq 2004; Kumchoo et al.
The fishery has enjoyed an upswing in catches and demand since the late 1980s, driven in part by technological advances in gear and fishing practices (Miller 1995), the decline of groundfish predators such as cod (Gadus morhua L.), other gadoids, and global weather phenomena that may have indirectly influenced the abundance of lobsters within the Gulf of Maine (Fogarty 1995).
Apropos of the present review, these authors found that Pacific hake (as well as other important gadoids in the Gulf of Alaska, walleye pollock, Theragra chalcogramma, and Pacific cod, Gadus macrocephalus) appeared to respond more strongly to interannual variability than to decadal climate variability, and they had a statistically higher proportion of strong year classes in unusually warm years than in other years.
In a study on cod loin air stored at 0.5 [+ or -] 0.5[degrees]C, TVB-N remained low during the first 10 days of storage, after which its level increased rapidly, exceeding the human consumption allowed limit for gadoids of 35 mg N/100 g [44] after 13 days [2].
