The tagging of #atlanticcod allow for more biological knowledge to be acquired which is crucial for a sustainable management to be conducted of this species in Western #Greenland . We were very lucky to meet these fishermen who were kind and helpful letting us pick out the best specimens for tagging from their catch. In this catch there is estimated 10 tons or c. 5000 fish which is double up of the vessel’s capacity. The remaining fish were released. #tagandrelease#marinescience#marinebiology#arctic#fishery#fisherymanagement
Not the biggest - but a strong candidate for the most beatiful #atlanticcod I have caught 🐟☝🏻In recent years, cod of this exact size are numerous in Westgreenland waters. Yet, fishery scientist are advisning a precautionary commercial fishery as it is unclear how large a fraction of these fish that belong to the to resident stock and how many are from the icelandic stock. If the fishery qouta is set to high it can have devestating effects when the icelandic part of the stock reach sexual maturation and leave the inshore waters of Westgreenland #greenland#marinebiology#tagandrelease#science#greenlandinstituteofnaturalresources
So it’s raining for about the 12th day in a row and my basement flooded last week so I thought fish would be appropriate... real talk though this is probably the best tasting meal I’ve ever made.
Find me someone who hates fish and I’ll change their mind with this one. I wish I could’ve went out and caught this fresh but I settled for the grocery store 🤫. This Atlantic Cod will literally fall apart around your fork, soak up a little butter, and be the best thing you’ve tasted all year. It’s quite the catch 😏 Lessss do it.
1 1/2 lbs cod (fresh or frozen)*
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, sliced
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground pepper
¾ tsp paprika
Few lemon slices
Herbs, parsley or cilantro
Mix up all the seasonings and dry pat on cod. Cover all areas. Throw about 2 Tbsp of butter in the skillet and let it melt. Throw the cod in the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes. Turn heat back to medium and flip. Add another slice of butter on top and cover for 3-4 minutes. Don’t let it swim away, serve immediately. Enjoy 😎
