UK Record Weights from rod/line:
MAFF Minimum Size: Shore:
Very similar body plan as Merlangius merlangus. No chin barbel, with the lower jaw slightly longer than the upper jaw, and the eyes are large in proportion to head size. Three dorsal fins all widely spaced, with the first being slightly pointed in profile. Of the two anal fins, the first has a long base, in fact longer than the distance from the snout to the anus. The back is a silver grey to bluish grey, that fades into the silvery sides and white belly.
