Cod Condition

Information about cod condition is a critical component of the assessment process and the objective of this project is to provide information about the condition of cod in the northern Gulf of St. Lawrence (4R3Pn).

Whole cod samples are collected throughout the fixed and mobile gear cod sentinel survey during January, February, and March.  Length, weight, sex, otoliths, maturity, liver weight, gonad weight, stomach contents, and tissue samples are collected and analyzed.
