Norwegian cod (Gadus morhua) is the original cod used for salting. More than 90% of the Norwegian cod fishery comes from the North-Eastern Arctic shoals, which grow in the cold waters of the Barents Sea. It is the largest fish among the Gadus species and has a uniform light color after salting.
The Ling (Molva molva) is a more slender fish compared to other types of cod. Its flesh has a lighter and more pleasant color.
Saithe (Pollachius virens) has a darker meat, with a stronger and more characteristic flavor.
