- n. A food fish (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) of northern Atlantic waters, related to and resembling the cod.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A wellknown fish, Melanogrammus æglefinus, of the cod family, Gadidæ, formerly called Gadus or Morrhua æglefinus. It resembles the cod, but has a smaller mouth, a slenderer form, a black lateral line, a spot on each side just behind the pectoral fin, and more pointed or angular fins than the cod, especially the first dorsal. It breeds in immense numbers in the North Atlantic, and is a very important food-fish. The flesh resembles that of the cod, but is firmer and drier. The fishing-grounds are in general the same as those of the cod, but less extensive. The usual weight of the haddock is about 4 pounds, but specimens weighing 17 pounds have been known.
- n. A name wrongly applied to Pseudophycis barbatus and Merluccius australis allied to the family Gadidæ or codfishes. The European species of Merluccius is known as the hake.
- n. A marine fish, Melanogrammus aeglefinus, of the North Atlantic, important as a food fish.

“I have no idea what a haddock is (I thought it was some kind of a field, evidently not!), but this IS a great post.”
“Soak a haddock for four hours in olive-oil to cover.”
“The haddock is the best choice for fish and chips as it is thick, flaky and tastes good.”
“Some species, such as haddock and Atlantic sea scallops have recovered from previous declines, after the U.S. government began enforcing parts of federal fisheries conservation legislation in the 1990s, says”
“Landings from the Icelandic area were no longer almost exclusively cod, but species such as haddock, halibut, plaice ( '' Pleuronectes platessa ''), and redfish ( '' Sebastes marinus '') also became common items of the catch.”
“Larval and 0-group cod and capelin, as well as species such as haddock, wolffish, tusk ( '' Brosme brosme ''), and ling ( '' Molva molva '') may also be carried by the western branch of the Irminger Current across to East Greenland and onward to West Greenland  (see Fig. 13.6).”
“Nevertheless, always willing to reinforce failure with, er … more failure, ICES are now calling for a complete ban on cod exploitation AND – in the height of moronic fatuity – are telling EU member state governments that other species, such as haddock and plaice, will have to be severely curtailed if cod is to be protected.”
“This comes from Gerd Hubold, the general-secretary of ICES, who has told the uncritical Times that the main problem is that although cod catches have been cut to 26,500 tonnes a year, more than twice that amount is being caught in bycatches by fishermen chasing other species such as haddock, whiting, hake and plaice.”
“In November, the Independent World Commission of the Oceans met in Cape Town to discuss the precipitous decline in common species of fish such as haddock, tuna, flounder and shrimp.”
“Lean fish such as haddock and tilapia, and fatty fish such as mackerel and sardines, are all used to make smoked products.”
