Moridae

The Moridae are a family of cod-like fishes, known as codlings, hakelings, and moras.

Morids are marine fishes found throughout the world, and may be found at depths to 2,500 m (8,200 ft), although most prefer shallower waters. In appearance, they greatly resemble the typical cods, from which can only be distinguished by their skeletal features and the structure of the swim bladder.[1]

They grow up to 90 cm (35 in) long (red codling, Pseudophycis bachus).
