Ling cod is a fish from the cod family that is found exclusively on the west coast of North America, especially near the coast of British Columbia. Ling cod are characterized by a long, single dorsal fin, a large mouth and teeth, and deep brown to dark green coloring. Mildly flavored, the ling cod is both a good source of protein and low in fat. You can cook ling cod the same as other types of codfish. (livestrong.com)
