Icelanders have long preferred haddock to any other species of fish for their own consumption and it has a definite place in the traditional Icelandic cookbook.

Haddock is found all around Iceland, especially off the south-west in the region between the Westmann Islands and the Snæfellsnes peninsula. This is a shallow water species, preferring muddy or sandy grounds.

Haddock reach maturity at three to four years and spawn in April-May. Adult fish are generally between 45 and 60cm.
