Dissostichus

Dissostichus is a genus of cod icefishes found in the southern oceans. Individuals may live for over fifty years, reach lengths over two metres and weigh over 200 kilograms.

Species[edit]

There are currently two recognized species in this genus:[2]

Marketing[edit]

Both species are marketed in the United States as Chilean sea bass (or Chilean seabass) or less frequently as white cod.[3] "Chilean sea bass" is a marketing name, coined in 1977 by Lee Lantz, a fish wholesaler who wanted a more attractive name for selling the Patagonian toothfish to Americans.[4][5] In 1994, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted "Chilean sea bass" as an "alternative market name" for Patagonian toothfish.[5]
